7. CIPD Builds Your Network
Signing up for a CIPD qualification gives you the option to interact with other HR professionals, many of whom are taking the same course as you.
Whether you connect through in-person training during classroom sessions, the CIPD online learning application, CIPD networking events, or even the ICS Learn Student Community, you can interact with HR professionals from all over the world, giving you access to a broad range of input to help guide you as you learn.
Building your network also leaves room for future opportunities and potential peer collaboration – or perhaps even a new job!
8. CIPD Offers Professional Membership
CIPD members are the most in-demand HR professionals in the world.
Once you’ve completed a CIPD Level 3 qualification, for instance, you'll automatically become a Foundation Member of CIPD alongside nearly 150,000 other innovative professionals around the world, giving you exclusive access to insights and guidance from distinguished HR experts.
Apart from the Foundation Level membership, there are various membership levels to achieve at each stage in your career (i.e. Associate Member, Chartered Member, and Chartered Fellow).
Each membership benefits from access to a wide array of member-only resources, connections, and support you need to make an impact in the HR industry.
CIPD is also the only professional HR body in the world that can issue Chartered status, meaning they recognise those in the HR industry who create significant value in their profession and award them for it by way of their credible recognition.
