Much of the course is delivered through participative workshops enabling you to share knowledge and get an appreciation of HR responses that need to be made in different situations and different contexts.
You will study specialised areas of HR which include Employment Law, Resourcing Talent and Performance Management or you may select optional units of your choice which are more relevant to your personal interest and/or suit your organisation’s needs.
We have achieved outstanding success in our student completion rates and the feedback received from both students and CIPD quality assurance. We provide the widest choice of optional units of any CIPD centre and will offer one-to-one advice to help you make the right choice of units which play to your strengths and identify your key development areas.
We have the strongest track record in using competency based assessment where you can maximise your work experience to further promote your learning and development.
The core units of this qualification will develop your understanding of how HR activities support an organisation’s strategies, and how HR professionals can support line managers to achieve business goals. It will also explore the professional competencies and skills required of HR professionals to provide an effective HR service, help identify your own personal development needs and apply your data analysis skills on HR metrics.

How is This Course Delivered?
We specialise in flexible learning solutions that are tailored to your needs. You can begin the programme at any time and complete it in a timescale which meets your career aspirations and work-life balance needs - anything from 6 to 9 months. As there are a number of workshop dates from which you can choose, you can pace your learning according to your own needs rather than those of a large group of learners or pre-set timetable.
Aside from the workshops, other learning methods include workbooks with reflective activities to help embed your learning, supplementary learning materials and assignments. You will also have regular contact with your personal adviser, who is allocated to you at the start of your programme, through telephone conversations, e-mail exchanges and/or Skype meetings.
How will it be assessed?
Your personal adviser will provide you with developmental feedback for each unit assessment. This feedback will guide you in terms of your progress with the unit content and advise you on your achievements and what, if any, areas could benefit from further development.
There are no exams for this qualification - each unit is assessed by the completion of a written assessment usually 1,000 - 2,000 words in length. These assessments are undertaken via our templates all of which have been approved by the CIPD and are based around the learning outcomes for each module. Some of the units also require assessment of your practical skills such as interviewing and this is either done as part of the workshop programme or you can use a real life work situation to demonstrate your skills.
How we differ from other centres
Our success rate and quality standards are second to none. We consistently outperform the national average exam pass rates (for Advanced qualifications) and achieve outstanding quality assurance ratings from the CIPD. This is because we have developed a unique and rigorous process which begins with a diagnostic consultation as the starting point to any learning engagement. We strive to ensure students are mapped to the correct qualification and then work with them every step of the way to help them achieve success. We are the only CIPD Centre to offer all of the optional units, providing maximum flexibility and choice. You will be supported throughout the programme by a dedicated personal adviser, regardless of which study option you choose.
