Developing with CIMA

With three levels, Premium, Advanced and Partner, there is one to suit any provision. If you are new to teaching CIMA we encourage you to start by applying to become a CIMA Global Learning Partner.  Once your courses have been running for at least 12 months, your college can apply to move on to Advanced Partner status. 

Established providers with an excellent track record of success, as evidenced by pass rates, student satisfaction and retention, may be recognised as Premium Partners. There is clear differentiation between the levels to help students make informed choices, but all levels will benefit from the association with CIMA. We also offer specific benefits tailored to meet different needs at different levels.
