Filling out your learning journal is important for two reasons. Firstly, the process of filling it out will provide time for reflection and reinforcement of the content you have seen or read, which is crucial for developing your skills and knowledge as a manager and leader. Secondly, completing the learning journal is mandatory if you wish to apply for a Certificate of Achievement. These Certificates provide you with formal recognition for your learning and continuing professional development and are also essential if you want to apply for the CMI Chartered Manager status.
Your answers in your learning journal will also assist you to answer the questions in the Assessment courses if you are competing a formal qualification.
