Course content

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is the professional body for HR and Personnel practitioners and the University is recognised as an accredited centre which means it is empowered by the CIPD to award its own internally assessed courses. When you successfully complete the course you will receive the Diploma and will have completed the skills and knowledge elements on the route to CIPD associateship. The CIPD will then require you to complete a behavioural assessment and demonstrate the required experience before upgrading to Associate membership status. The course can be taken as a stand alone course or you can elect to take the subsequent Postgraduate Diploma HRM/D and MA. You can decide to do this at a much later date.

The course is a mix of lectures, group activities and student presentations. Frequent use is made of case study and other student-centred materials. Students are expected to be active participants in the sessions. Groups or individuals may also seek guidance in tutorials with the course leader.
