How is This Course Delivered?

We specialise in flexible learning solutions that are tailored to your needs.

There are a number of workshop dates and the modules you choose can be undertaken in any order.

Aside from the workshops, other learning methods can include workbooks, assignments, self-study, guided learning and evidence collation. All programmes include regular telephone conversations, e-mail exchanges and/or Skype meetings with your dedicated personal adviser who is allocated to you at the start of your programme.

How will it be assessed?

You will receive developmental, formative feedback throughout the programme which will help guide you towards success in the final assessments. As well as assessing your expertise in the subject area, your adviser/CIPD examiner will assess your business orientation, application capability and your ability to present your work confidently and persuasively.

The four core modules comprise: two 3-hour examinations (7HRC and 7LMP); a business research report (7IBI), which can be submitted in your company’s style with supporting narrative; and a reflective module covering a range of essential business skills (7SBL). The final submissions for optional modules (four in total) are in the form of 3,000 word narratives covering 50% of the module learning outcomes. These can be supported and enhanced by work based evidence which demonstrates your competence.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
