MDN delivers bespoke qualification programmes in Management & Leadership and Coaching & Mentoring via distance learning for all levels of skills and abilities, from Team Leaders at Level 2 up to Strategic Managers at Level 7. The qualifications are accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and help to translate workplace experience into recognisable qualifications that are known and valued by employers. We work on a 1:1 basis, supporting learners in making the most of their previous experience and translating this into current learning via a distance learning programme. For the more experienced managers we also offer the prestigious CMI Award of “Chartered Manager” (CMgr).

Supported by our CMI CMgr staff who will provide a comprehensive 1:1 learning experience, MDN’s blended process enables flexibility of learning thus allowing learners to programme their development in line with business and private life, utilising current or previous workplace experience. For those wanting to develop themselves above and beyond we offer Further Development programmes. Recent CMI research shows that 1:5 managers in the workplace have no formal qualifications or training, so the qualifications can help to enhance your professional reputation and boost your career prospects.

MDN have over 20 years proven and extensive association with the Armed Forces in supporting Service Personnel to translate their military service skills into CMI qualifications that are recognised and valued in the civilian sector.  CMI is a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant and 100% of our staff are ex-military. We actively support serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families, and are an approved delivery centre in the MOD Enhanced Learning Credits scheme. Having been through resettlement ourselves, we understand the difficulty that military families face when trying to translate their wide-ranging and varied skills and experience into a tangible form that is valued by employers, and strive to help each and every learner make the best use of their knowledge through the achievement of credible qualifications.

We accept all Military funding options including ELCs, SLCs and IRTC grants.
