Find out if the HR Support Apprenticeship is right for you
Who is this apprenticeship for?
HR professionals in this role are typically:
- working in a medium-to-large organisation delivering front-line support to managers and employees, or
- an HR Manager in a small organisation.
HR professionals in this role are often required to make decisions and recommendations on what the business should do in a specific situation. They influence managers to change their thinking and bring good practices into the organisation. They’re also likely to lead the people-related parts of business or HR projects. Whatever their role, they link their work to the context and priorities of the business.
In a larger organisation they may be one of a team supporting the business, and may also have responsibility for managing people.
The entry requirements for this apprenticeship will be decided by the employer. Apprentices without level 2 Maths and English will need to achieve this prior to taking the end-point assessment.
The apprentice will complete an appropriate qualification (as considered most relevant by the employer), within which they’ll be able to focus on their chosen option:
- CIPD Level 5 Certificate in Human Resource Management (Intermediate)
- CIPD Level 5 Diploma in Human Resource Management (Intermediate)
The length of this apprenticeship should typically be 2-3 years, but could be closer to 18 months if the apprentice has previously completed the Level 3 apprenticeship.
