What to expect from this CIPD Level 5 course

If you want to improve your people management skills and knowledge, there’s nothing like a prestigious professional qualification from the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development to encourage employers to take notice when you are applying for an HR role.

This CIPD Level 5 qualification has seven units in total. The first three are core units based on the CIPD Profession Map, the next three will help you develop specialist HR knowledge, and the final choice is an optional unit which you can select from a variety of topics. This diploma can take as little as nine months to complete and leads to CIPD Associate Membership.

You can start any time and work at your own pace by taking advantage of our fully flexible HR and L&D online training or enjoy live virtual learning sessions at our renowned facilitated workshops.

You can choose from a range of study modes based on how you learn best.

What does your pathway to being CIPD qualified look like?

Your learning journey for this CIPD level 5 course will typically last up to 18 months but could be completed in much less time than this.
