Are you already working in HR & People Management and want to take the next step in your career, or are you thinking about starting a career in this sector?

The new Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Level 3 Certificate in People Practice is a foundation-level, professional qualification being introduced in 2021.

The qualification focuses on the knowledge and behaviours required to create value and make an impact in the changing world of work.

You'll be introduced to a wide range of practical skills required by line managers, personnel officers, secretarial/personnel assistants, or clerical staff in the field of HR.

The following modules will be undertaken:

  • Business, culture and change in context
  • Principles of analytics
  • Core behaviours for people professionals
  • Essentials of people practice

You will study four units which are assessed internally and externally moderated by a CIPD examiner.

You'll need GCSE English at Grade C or above, or an equivalent qualification.

You'll also need to complete a literacy and numeracy test prior to being interviewed.

On successful completion of this course you can progress to the Associate Diploma in People Management Level 5.

The Certificate in HR Practice will also enable you to progress in your HR career and after completion of the course you will be invited to become a member of the CIPD.
