The CIPD is the professional body for HR and people development and offers professional training and accreditation for those working in HR and learning and development. This is a new course and the latest qualification from the CIPD.

This qualification is for you if you are working in or seeking to develop a career in Human Resources (HR) management and development, and need to extend your knowledge and skills. It is also aimed at those who have responsibility for implementing HR policies and strategies. This course will be held on Thursday Evenings.

You will study a combination of core and optional units.

Core units include:

  • Organisational performance and culture in practice
  • Evidence-based practice
  • Professional behaviours and valuing people
  • Employment relationship management
  • Talent management and workforce planning
  • Reward for performance and contribution
  • Well-being at work

A range of learning and assessment methods will be used to help develop your knowledge, analytical and problem solving skills. You will be required to complete a variety of assessment tasks for each unit of study to ensure the assessment criteria for that unit are successfully met. This can involve a wide range of assessment activities and methods, all of which are related to the workplace/organisational context with a blend of remote and face to face teaching.

Ideally you should have completed a CIPD foundation level qualification (Certificate in HR Practice, or the Certificate in Personnel Practice, CPP). Alternatively, you may have studied at foundation degree or undergraduate level previously, or have experience as an HR professional at managerial level. The course tutor will undertake an informal interview/discussion with you in order to determine the most appropriate level of study.

The course fee is £1,450.

This course is free If you live in the West Midlands Combined Authority area. To be eligible for this funding you must be 19+ years old and live in the West Midlands, on a low wage below £18,135 or unemployed.
