The courses are focused on the role of HR in building sustainable business success.

Difference between Awards, Certificates and Diplomas
Awards are bitesize qualifications accredited by CIPD which will give you knowledge of a specific field. They're ideal for people who want to refresh their existing professional knowledge of a specific HR or L&D subject area.
CIPD Certificates are medium-scope qualifications which cover essential subject areas comprehensively.
Diplomas are the most extensive CIPD accredited qualifications that cover more subject areas and earn you more credits than the Certificates.
