Craig Cadwaladr

CMI Diploma in Management & Leadership Level 5

"I joined the Level 5 CMI Diploma in Leadership and Management qualification to enable me to develop my current role as Deputy Head of Catering at Chester Racecourse.
The skills I learned were directly relevant to my role and were easy to apply to day to day operations. I really enjoyed going back into education. The group was small and we developed great camaraderie which helped us support each other. I found the tutors to be experienced and knowledgeable. They really helped me to understand the theory behind the managerial development of my teams and supported me in implementing new practices in my workplace."
