The award of Chartered Manager is the highest status that can be achieved in management and leadership. Awarded only by the Chartered Management Institute, the award of Chartered Manager is recognised throughout the public and private sectors and across all management disciplines.

TFL Education have partnered with the Chartered Management Institute to bring this prestigious award to the education sector. The award provides school leaders with the opportunity to reflect on the practical application of your skills to create impact within your organisation and examines your expertise in leading people and managing change.


Completing Chartered Manager enabled me to genuinely reflect on my effectiveness in school and celebrate my achievements through a truly professional process. It’s an excellent tool for professional development and the support of the Chartered Management Institute’s ambassadors has been exceptional throughout. I believe this is a great partnership between the teaching profession and an internationally recognised professional organisation.

Chartered Manager gives you more than just letters after your name - it is a career-defining attribute.
Professional recognition and independent endorsement of your ability to deliver results.
A means of differentiation, setting you apart and boosting your career prospects within and beyond your current role.
A stimulus to career progression - helping you become a more confident and efficient leader.
Parity with other Chartered professionals.
