BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Leadership & Management

About the course

The Level 5 Diploma is a middle management qualification that builds on the SNCO or WO CLM qualification and endorses the extensive management and leadership training and skills you have gained over your military career.

It accredits your accomplishments in a form that is meaningful to civilian employers. The qualification is internationally recognised and because it has been mapped to military training, it provides a fast-track route to a civilian management qualification.


You must attend a two day workshop which will show you how to develop a portfolio that, together with your SNCO CLM experience, will provide evidence for the diploma.

How long is the course?

Two days but learners need to successfully meet all of the assessment criteria so may need to complete additional work after the course.


£400 and you can use your SLC.


The programme has been designed so that you can meet the assessment criteria by completing workbooks during the course – although some prefer to complete them later. You may need to submit additional work after the workshops if your answers do not fully meet the targeted criteria.

Where do I study?
