I'm hoping someone who has similar experience could help me. I obtained my Master's Degree in HR at Warwick Business School 8 years ago. My course was CIPD level 7 accredited. However at the time, my plan was to return to my own country after my studying, CIPD didn't seem necessary since it's not recognized there. So like the majority of my classmates who also plan to return to their own country, I didn't take the CIPD route (which included 3-4 extra modules and costed a bit more).
After I went back home, I've been working as a HR professional. The interesting thing is life has lead me back to the UK 3 years ago. I first worked for a relatively small business where my duties covered HR and other aspects. I was super busy and overwhelming, so I didn't really look into getting CIPD qualification. Recently I took a new recruitment role in a big organization, and I start to consider a lot about my future career. I'd really like to get CIPD qualified.
I see many people did CIPD qualification and want a Master's degree top up, but I can't find anyone in my reversed position! I guess it was a mistake not taking CIPD route when I was a student. I just never saw myself coming back and working in the UK at that time!
What do you think is my best approach? What's the most feasible and cost effective way for me to join CIPD?
Thank you very much for your time!
