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.
