If you’re aiming for the top in the people profession and want to increase your strategic HR or L&D knowledge, then there are two brand-new postgraduate level qualifications from the CIPD to help your career reach new heights.

The CIPD Level 7 Advanced Diploma in Strategic People Management and the CIPD Level 7 Advanced Diploma in Strategic Learning and Development have been designed to help you take the lead and generate real influence at a high level.

Not only do both qualifications prepare you for the prestigious CIPD Chartered Membership, they will also boost your personal effectiveness and business acumen. By learning from a combination of core and specialist units, you will gain the expertise you need to build your confidence and improve your decision making. But importantly if you are looking to achieve your career potential, a Level 7 qualification is now an essential requirement for most senior people profession jobs.

Take your pick from Reed Learning’s four study options, all of which provide full flexibility so you can shape your learning around your work and home life commitments.

  • Study 100% online and work whenever you want or wherever you are based.

  • Learn with others in live online workshops and build your professional network.

  • Get CIPD qualified quickly with our Fast Track options or work more leisurely at your own pace.

  • Use your experience and work-based evidence on one of our tailored programmes, an option only available at a few centres, which are particularly suited to Level 7 qualifications.

Whatever learning journey you choose, rest assured you will be supported throughout your qualification by your own personal adviser and have access to a wide selection of the latest online resources, workbooks and study materials. The individualised approach we take with all candidates will guarantee your success.

Those who apply for CIPD Advanced qualifications are usually experienced people practitioners with a degree, but don’t worry if you are unsure Level 7 is the best option.

Simply pick up the phone and call one of our specialist advisers to answer your questions, or book a free no obligation personal diagnostic with an expert who will be able to provide more broader career advice.

The support from my tutor was amazing and the feedback on all my assignments were of good detail. I would definitely recommend Reed Learning.

I would highly recommend Reed Learning. I completed my CIPD Level 7 in Human Resources and Amanda was brilliant, as were the tutors for each course day. I opted for the course workshop route, which I really enjoyed. Amanda marked things very quickly and gave helpful feedback.
