Each of our programmes are now Institute Approved and/or registered with Ofqual
The CORP Plus™️ programme establishes a new standard for advanced-level practitioner certification, offering a uniquely attractive and innovative combination of academic research and strategic delivery - an approach which advances the subject as a whole and is also one which directly benefits the organisation.
The CORP Plus™️ programme is now Institute Approved, providing professional recognition for our learning content and approach to leadership development. This allows successful candidates to enjoy access to award-winning learning resources from one of the UK's largest institute bodies - The Institute of Learning and Management.
The CORP Plus™️ programme is aimed at senior managers and is aligned to the Institute’s highest professional grade. Successful completion of the programme is accompanied by an invite to Fellow, providing access to the post nominals FInstLM.
Central to achieving the highest level of practitioner certification is a short dissertation, supported by appropriate detail and explanation of the candidate’s chosen research topic. Candidates' work is assessed at key points during the process, starting with research methodology and ethical considerations, with independent oversight and advice provided by Academy colleagues who hold masters or doctorate qualifications from leading UK universities.
The second element of the CORP Plus™️ programme involves the candidate demonstrating a leadership role in the development and implementation of a significant improvement initiative, change programme or other strategic activity, with a clear emphasis on delivery of value and achievement of organisational objectives.
As with each of the CORP grades, there is no annual subscription or licensing fee, and there is no expiry date to CORP Plus™️ status once achieved. Candidates are free to enrol at a time which is convenient to them. In addition, a summary tutorial and material from each of the Academy's Institute Approved (IA) courses is offered free to candidates upon enrolment.
As minimum entry requirements, fees for the Level 5 qualification course are currently £250, with an additional fee for those wishing to gain a formal qualification certificate from ATHE, the awarding body. This course is offered exclusively to client organisations with at least 5 candidates.
Fees for the alternative route to CORP Plus™️ enrolment, via the CORP lite™️ or CORP™️ programmes or via the Institute Approved 'RESILIENCE ESSENTIALS' course, begin at only £150.
In addition to the above, fees for the assessment of the dissertation, practical report and the confirmation of CORP Plus™️ status are £1450.
Total fees for achieving CORP Plus™️ status from only £1600.
Above fees are exclusive of VAT.
CORP Plus™️ status allows individuals to display the CORP™️ logo and to reference their certified status on personal websites and social media profiles by using the CORP or CORP Plus™️ acronym.
[NOTE - Any institute membership fees are paid separately to The Institute of Leadership and Management, and membership may be subject to annual renewal and is subject to the institute's own terms and conditions.]
CORP Plus™️ status is deliberately aimed at senior professionals and managers, with learning at a level equivalent to master's degrees, postgraduate certificates and postgraduate diplomas.
