The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is the world’s largest professional body for those involved in the management and development of people.

It has over 150,000 members worldwide and every year, more than 25,000 professionals study CIPD HR and L&D qualifications and certifications. It’s the gold standard for professional quality in human resources and learning and development.

This means that CIPD qualifications are highly respected and sought-after by employers, and are in high demand across the Middle East.

Where CIPD qualifications aren't a necessity, they'll put you head and shoulders above the competition.

CIPD Level 7 qualifications are best suited to those who are ready to take on postgraduate-level study and who have either significant HR experience or an HR degree.

They're perfect if you’re already working in or are looking to move into a high-level HR role where you will have responsibility for designing and implementing HR strategy and policy.

If this doesn't sound like you, you might be better suited to a Level 3 or Level 5 qualification.

CIPD Level 3 qualifications are ideal if you're just starting out in HR and want to master the key operational skills you'll need to excel in entry-level roles.

CIPD Level 5 qualifications are great if you're seeking a mid-level role such as HR Manager or Advisor. They're suited to those who have some experience of HR, whether through working in HR directly or working in a role which involves aspects of HR, such as management.

Level 5 qualifications are also a great choice if you haven't worked in HR before but have a university degree and want to begin learning at a higher level.

Before you enrol with us, our expert CIPD advisors will talk through your experience, education, and ambitions to ensure you’re choosing the right course for you.

At each CIPD Level, there are three lengths of qualification to choose from.

CIPD Diplomas are the most comprehensive CIPD courses at each level and take the longest to complete. They cover all areas of HR from employment law to talent management, giving you well-rounded generalist and specialist knowledge that will serve you well in a wide variety of roles.

CIPD Certificates consist of selected modules from the full Diploma. They're slightly shorter in length, but still cover the core subjects in detail, and are a great choice if you’re looking to gain essential HR knowledge in less time.

CIPD Award is an individual module from the Diploma studied as a standalone course. They give you in-depth knowledge of a narrow subject area and are ideal if you’d like to specialise in a specific area of HR or L&D such as employment law.
