About the qualification programmes we run
As CIPD's own learning delivery arm, we provide qualification programmes for those who work in HR and training, learning and development, as well as for line managers in all functions.
There are numerous organisations across the UK to choose from when deciding where to do your qualification; ranging from local colleges offering evening classes to independent providers. But there are a number of things that make the programmes we deliver, and the support you receive, different from the rest!
Our qualifications range from foundation programmes for those starting out in their careers, to advanced qualifications for senior practitioners.Introductory Foundation Intermediate Advanced
The full CIPD qualifications
We run CIPD qualifications across a range of levels, which offer the underpinning knowledge for Associate (Assoc CIPD) and the full, Chartered (MCIPD)/Chartered Fellow (FCIPD) levels of professional membership. These are the most popular and widely recognised CIPD qualifications in the HR and L&D industries. Successful completion of the full Advanced Level Diploma is often referred to as being ‘CIPD qualified’.View the full CIPD qualifications we offer
Competency based qualifications
We provide a range of advanced level competency based qualifications for those looking to get their specialist CIPD qualification, without any need for further study. All you need to do is prove that you have the experience and are already working to a high standard in order to be awarded with the relevant CIPD qualification.View competency-based qualifications
Our qualification programmes offer you:
First class trainers
Not only are all our trainers experts in their respective fields, but they actually work in the areas they teach. We select them because they are passionate about learning and have proven their ability to facilitate top-quality training and bring that expertise to you. With in-depth knowledge, practical experience and excellent training facilitation skills, we can guarantee you that your trainer will be second to none.
Unlimited support from a personal tutor
On most of our programme, you’ll be assigned a personal tutor, who provides support, guidance and encouragement throughout the programme. This is invaluable when you are juggling the challenge of studying with a busy home and work life. They’ll be ready to support you by phone or email whenever you need it.
Comprehensive course notes and reference materials
All our qualification programmes include abundant course documentation and reference material, including specific resources for your qualification programme (textbooks, workbooks, etc. all included in the price).
Dedicated online resources
You'll have access to a dedicated online Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). This site will have been developed exclusively for students of your qualification programme. It allows you to submit your assessments online and network with fellow learners. You’ll also find extensive resources to aid your learning. For example, networked discussion forums, assignment guidance, revision tips, and where appropriate, past exam papers, examiner’s reports, online exam tutorials and much more.
A unique blended approach
Most of our qualification programmes take a blended approach – combining face-to-face learning with self-study and online working. This powerful mix is one of the best ways to achieve sustained skills enhancement, and also minimises the time you need to spend away from the office.
