Manager Guide for CMI Level 6 Qualifications

The purpose of this guide is to provide information about the qualifications your member of staff is working towards and to answer some of the questions you may have about your role in supporting them throughout the process.


What are the Level 6OD qualifications?

The Level 6OD qualifications in Advanced Management and Leadership are designed for middle and senior managers working in the Operational Delivery profession who want to develop personal management capabilities, make effective use of information in decision-making, operations and development of the skills in managing people.

What is my role?

Your role is to support your member of staff through the qualification process.

This is achieved by:

  • Discussing and agreeing with them the most appropriate development opportunities
  • Enabling completion of the learning activities and applying the learning in the workplace
  • Having regular discussions with them, including review of any learning they've undertaken

More information about the qualification

If you access the Candidate Guide this will give you supporting information about the qualification.

The individual qualification guides give details of how you can support your member of staff through the assessment criteria of the qualification.

The guides will include tips and hints for Line Managers in:

  • Structuring a discussion that is relevant to the learning outcomes of the qualification
  • Putting together work-based assignments or tasks that enable your member of staff to demonstrate their knowledge or practice the skills identified within those learning outcomes
  • Recognising what constitutes prior or previous learning
  • Enabling your member of staff to undertake learning that supports the qualification
  • The following links will provide you with additional information.

To achieve success in a particular unit you need to show that you are able to meet the assessment criteria. There are a number of ways in which you can do this. These include your day-to-day work activities and the learning opportunities that you undertake as part of your normal professional development.

Many of the things you do as part of your development and applying this to your work will give you evidence that shows you fulfill the assessment criteria. How you get your evidence assessed is in the section: How do I get my work assessed?

What exactly is involved

The accredited qualification pathway sits beside the non-accredited pathway. This means that you will be undertaking some of the same learning opportunities as colleagues who have chosen not to follow the accreditation route. The difference is you will submit your evidence to show how you have applied this learning and met the CMI standards.

The accredited qualification pathway is designed to lead to a qualification so there will be some extra activity you need to do to provide the evidence that you meet the assessment criteria.
