There are three CIPD Human Resources qualifications to choose from.
The CIPD Foundation Certificate in People Practice is designed for those with no or minimal HR experience. It’s perfect if you’re looking for your first HR role.
The CIPD Associate Diploma in People Management is designed for those with some HR experience who are looking for a mid-level HR role. It’s also suitable if you have some experience of HR duties in a non-HR role (for example, as a manager), or if you're new to HR but have a degree and want to begin your studies at a higher level.
The CIPD Advanced Diploma in Strategic People Management is designed for those with considerable HR experience or an HR degree who are ready to take on postgraduate-level study. It’ll prepare you for strategic senior HR roles and allow you to apply for CIPD Chartered Membership once you have the necessary professional experience.
If you’d like to specialise in L&D, you could also study one of our CIPD Learning & Development courses.
We know everyone’s situation is different, so before you enrol, our CIPD Course Advisors will talk through your experience, education and ambitions to make sure you’re choosing the perfect course for you.
