Course Structure

This qualification builds on the CIPD Level 3 Foundation Certificate in People Practice and is aimed at further expanding learners’ independent practice to enable them to evolve into more senior roles within organisations as people professionals. Learners’ work will be mainly operational with some complexity. They will contribute to the thinking around their work, analysing information to inform choices and actions. Working with and influencing others through their work will create short-term value for a wider audience. Using a framework of HR and L&D understanding, behaviours and skills development, this qualification offers opportunity for learners to transition to employment as people managers.  The course will be delivered over one academic year and will involve candidates attending one evening per week to complete the programme. It is suited to individuals who:

  • are aspiring to, or embarking on, a career in people management
  • are working in a people practice role and wish to contribute their knowledge and skills to help shape organisational value 
  • are working towards or working in a people manager role

Candidates are required to attend one evening course per week and in addition are expected to complete approx. 6hrs of independent study per week. 

Evening session will be a mix of both face to face delivery and virtual delivery sessions.

Candidates are required to be working in a HR Management role.  All candidates will be interviewed by the programme coordinator to assess suitability for the programme.

Assessment is the process of evaluating an individual’s attainment of knowledge, understanding and skills. Candidates will be required to complete individual written reports to meet the assessment requirements.  All candidates will be given formative and summative feedback to assist in development.

Successful achievement of the CIPD Level 5 Associate Diploma in People Management will allow progression onto the CIPD Level 7 Advanced Diploma in Strategic People Management or the CIPD Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Learning and Development.

Candidates will be able to continue to pursue a career in HR Management on completion of the programme.
