What students say...

This CMI project was very enlightening. I learnt a lot and I am quite honoured to have enhanced my leadership skills as the head boy of my school. I would like to recommend this course to as many people as possible, so that more responsible leaders are developed.

Charles | Student | British International School Gambia

I really learnt a lot through this course and would highly recommend it to any high school student. I wish I had taken it earlier. Through this course I have learnt a lot of necessary skills that I never really thought about. I have learnt team management skills, leadership skills and also project management skills. I would recommend the CMI course to other students because it will be super helpful regardless of the career path they decide to take. I am glad I took the CMI course.

Rohey | Student | British International School Gambia

As the first CMI (Chartered Management Institute) course that I have ever done, I believe I have been equipped with practical skills necessary for any corporate setting. The successful completion of the course, not only comes with hands-on leadership skills, but also an accredited qualification.

The course also boosted my confidence. During the classroom sessions, I got the opportunity to openly express my opinions about assigned tasks and the frequent communication within the team activities has helped me come out of my introverted shell. I have been able to discover how best I work in a team and so I have made some personal adjustments that would make me an active team player in the future.
