Making the most of your Learning Journey....

Partnerships with Academic Institutions & Business Schools         

2009 to present day
We partnered to design the new ‘MA in Development Training’, along with modules on the ‘MA in Experiential Learning’ & the forthcoming ‘Leadership for Sustainability’ for University of Cumbria

2006 to present day
We designed and currently deliver the Senior Academic Leadership Programme (SALP) at University of Edinburgh

1999 to 2007
We assisted in the design and delivery of the ‘MA in Development Training’ in partnership with University College of St Martin (degree awarded by Lancaster University)

We also partner with international business schools including INSEAD, IMD, Columbia, Duke University and Harvard on a regular basis to add experiential elements to degrees and short executive courses. We believe that, in general, management education is not sufficiently practical and we have a general commitment to changing that. We are also taking steps towards the creation of an academic institution that would bring together experiential learning for leadership with courses in organisational sustainability.

Partnerships with Professional Bodies

Impact is an approved Centre with the Chartered Management Institute. The CMI is the only chartered professional body that is dedicated to management and leadership.  The CMI granted Impact ‘Approved Centre’ status in 2007 and it is through partnerships like these that the Institute offers a suite of qualifications for managers at all levels, from Team Leaders to Senior Managers and Directors.

For the past 3 years we have been offering a range of CMI management and leadership qualifications at national levels 3, 5 and 7. We have now received approval to extend this remit to cover coaching and mentoring qualifications and are on track to launch these qualifications at levels 3, 5 and 7.

We have worked closely with the CMI to ensure that we retain the unique, challenging and innovative approach that Impact’s award winning programmes are renowned for, whilst creating a robust framework for accreditation.  Currently accreditation can be offered on an individual basis or incorporated into a tailor-made programme design.

Many Impact facilitators are fellows, members or associate members of CIPD.
