Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for this course, however you must have an appropriate level of English and need to be able to produce written academic assignments of some length. You will also be asked to complete an English initial assessment prior to enrolment. This is a very demanding qualification and you will be expected to attend every class and undertake homework and assignment work outside the classroom.

Delivery and Assessment

Assessment will take a variety of methods; written assignments, individual presentations and group presentations. You will be required to attend up to three Saturday assessment workshops during the year. The assignments are set by CIPD and are marked and then verified internally. The awarding body visits the college twice a year to validate the assessment process and the course organisation.


On completion of this course, you may consider progressing onto the CIPD Level 5 Certificate in Human Resource Management.
