Build­ing on univer­sity’s sta­tus

Coventry Telegraph - - LEARNING ZONE - By DAVID WHINYATES Spe­cial Correspondent

CU Coven­try, part of the wider Coven­try Univer­sity Group, has be­come the lat­est Char­tered Man­ager In­sti­tute (CMI) Char­tered Man­ager As­sess­ment Cen­tre – join­ing a se­lect group of just eight other UK uni­ver­si­ties.

Recog­ni­tion as a Char­tered Man­ager As­sess­ment Cen­tre builds on the univer­sity’s sta­tus as a CMI Ap­proved Cen­tre and will al­low CU Coven­try to both de­liver and as­sess CMI qual­i­fi­ca­tions and the Char­tered Man­ager Award and recog­nise pro­fes­sional prac­tice.

Jackie White­house, head of aca­demic stud­ies at CU Coven­try, said: “CU Coven­try has an ex­cel­lent pro­fes­sional re­la­tion­ship with the CMI. Our de­gree cour­ses within Busi­ness have the CMI pro­fes­sional ac­cred­i­ta­tion em­bed­ded into the cur­ricu­lum.

The univer­sity also pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity for all stu­dents study­ing the CMDA ap­pren­tice­ship pro­gramme to achieve char­tered man­ager sta­tus upon com­ple­tion of their qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

“We have a num­ber of aca­demic man­agers who have ex­ten­sive busi­ness acu­men and who have been recog­nised as char­tered man­agers by CMI.

This lat­est achieve­ment seeks to build on this re­la­tion­ship, but also es­tab­lishes a cen­tre in the West Mid­lands for in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als to pur­sue in­di­vid­ual as­sess­ment and pro­fes­sional recog­ni­tion.

We couldn’t be more de­lighted to be en­dorsed by CMI for our ex­per­tise in this field of work.”

Keith Richard­son, di­rec­tor of part­ner­ship de­vel­op­ment at CMI, said: “CMI is de­lighted to an­nounce that CU Coven­try, part of the wider Coven­try Univer­sity group, has been ap­proved as a CMI Char­tered Man­ager As­sess­ment Cen­tre. This is wor­thy recog­ni­tion of all the ex­cel­lent work un­der­taken by the team at Coven­try in re­cent months.

“Ap­proval as an as­sess­ment cen­tre means that CU Coven­try is firmly es­tab­lished as a ‘one shop stop’ and cen­tre of ex­cel­lence for high qual­ity man­age­ment and lead­er­ship de­vel­op­ment. The an­nounce­ment is great news for Coven­try, for stu­dents and for busi­nesses across the West Mid­lands.”
