We know that good CPD is:

Bespoke - to the individual
Flexible - for a variety of different contexts
Incremental - so that change can happen over time
Proven - to work in a particular context
Incentivised - with direct and indirect benefits


TFL Education’s leadership development framework provides a unique opportunity for you to design your personal CPD programme around a Qualification Framework (RQF) of internationally recognised management, leadership, coaching and mentoring qualifications.

Encouraging you to focus on translating effective management and leadership skills into effective operational and strategic performance, we provide the freedom and flexibility for you to create a personal, accredited, sustainable, and evidence-based professional development programme.

Design, Delivery, Duration and Assessment…

All of our qualification programmes are mapped to National Occupational Standards for Management and Leadership and are accredited by the Royal Chartered Management Institute.

Programme design
We work with you to design your leadership development programme so that it is bespoke to your context, ensuring the mode of delivery meets your needs.

Programme delivery
We provide a self-directed study delivery method for our qualifications and work with you to support your self-directed study journey.

Programme duration
The length of study time will depend on the units chosen. As a rough guide:

Award: 1-3 months
Certificate: 3-6 months
Diploma: 6-12 months

Programme assessment
We have developed approved assignment briefs for each of the qualifications in our professional development framework, ensuring that you can meet the respective assessment criteria for each qualification.

The assignment briefs provide best practice guidelines, examine work-based scenarios, and encourage you to apply management and leadership tools, models and theories, to real life workplace situations.

Once you complete and submit your assignment briefs we then provide a direct route to accreditation.
