level 7 professional consulting qualifications image of consultants meetingThe Level 7 Professional Consulting qualifications range has been developed for experienced practitioners who now want to develop their skills to lead consultancy interventions and teams, working closely with clients to achieve organisational change.

It is also suitable for those seeking to enter management consultancy having already gained significant expertise in their own functional area or senior/middle management; and are experienced in business planning and strategy.

These qualifications are awarded by the Chartered Management Institute and Institute of Consulting.

This qualification is suitable for:

  • Existing internal or external consultants
  • Experienced Managers wishing to extend their range and develop their consultancy skills
  • Experienced functional specialists seeking to expand their remit and consulting activities
  • Seasoned project managers operating in a total business context
  • Middle and Senior managers seeking a career change

Three Level 7 professional consulting qualifications are available: the Award Certificate, and Diploma.

The difference between these three options is the number of units you study and pass. Each unit is given a “credit value”, and for each qualification there is a minimum number of “credits” to achieve.

So you can choose the size of qualification that is just right for you. Later you can add more units and “upgrade” your qualification until you obtain the Level 7 Professional Consulting Diploma.

The links below will help you to explore each qualification in more detail and to access pricing and enrolment pages.
