Accredited Programmes

CAKE offers practical, business-focused management qualifications for your executives, managers, supervisors or team leaders.


We provide accredited open programmes leading to awards, certificates and diplomas to Level 7, by the two best known membership and accreditation bodies in the increasingly professionalised roles of management and leadership.


The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and Chartered Management Institute (CMI) programmes combine the rigour of assessment with a practical learning experience.  


While both organisations set their own standards for qualification, there is still plenty of scope for CAKE to construct a programme to meet the specific needs of your business.


The additional benefit of an open programme is that members of your team not only learn from the expertise of one of our consultants, but also from meeting individuals from other organisations to gain a variety of different perspectives.


CAKE provides a wide range of programmes at different levels so please talk to us about how we can identify the right path for you or members of your team.

Turn your in-house-training into recogonised qualifications. CAKE are able to bring your in-house-management and leadership training in line with CMI and ILM qualifications, leading all participants to achieving awards, certificates or diplomas that are recognised throughout Europe.


We take you step-by-step and support you through the process:


We first map your programmes against nationally recognised qualifications.


Then we can help design them to ensure they meet the necessary standards.


We also offer an assessment service to track candidate progress and drive the transfer of learning to your workplace.


But if you prefer to stay in control we can coach your trainers to deliver accredited workshops and make all assessments.


If you would you like more information on accreditation, then do get in touch, our team are ready to help.


"CAKE have been delivering leadership and management training with us for a number of years and it’s consistently to a very high standard. Our staff that go on ILM programmes consistently comment on the quality of the sessions and the level of support they receive from Steve and Grant during the sessions. We always have enough staff signing up for the courses, despite running regular cohorts (two a year), which is a statement of the quality of training you’re delivering. As a programme coordinator, I always find working with you and Laura fantastic and for me that’s part of the great overall experience CAKE provides to us."  R.Stuart Babergh & Mid Suffolk District Councils
