CIPD Level 5 Intermediate Qualifications

CIPD Level 5 qualifications are the intermediate level of the Human Resources and Learning & Development qualifications awarded by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. They sit on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) at Level 5 and are therefore equivalent to Undergraduate Level.

CIPD intermediate qualifications build on your existing HR or L&D expertise and knowledge. This level of CIPD studies is suitable for those:

  1. seeking to develop a career in HR management or development by studying a recognised qualification
  2. who need to understand the role of HR or L&D in the wider organisational and environmental context
  3. seeking to progress and further develop their professional HR or L&D knowledge after studying a CIPD Level 3 Foundation qualification
  4. aspiring to become a professional member of the CIPD, as an Associate member

Completing a CIPD qualification at intermediate level means you will be upgraded to Associate Membership of the CIPD. You can start using the designatory letters Assoc CIPD on your CV, signature, business cards and so on, and demonstrate to employers your commitment to upholding the highest professional standards.

Examples of job roles you can enter or progress in with this level of study include:

  1. HR/L&D Analyst
  2. HR/L&D Manager
  3. HR/L&D Advisor
  4. HR/L&D Business Partner
  5. Recruitment Manager

Prices start from £108/month interest-free.

What is the difference between the CIPD Level 5 Certificate and the CIPD Level 5 Diploma?

The Level 5 Intermediate Certificate is a popular medium scope qualification which offers a comprehensive coverage of essential subject areas. However, the most comprehensive qualification covering the most units at this level is the Level 5 Diploma. The diploma covers more subjects and, therefore, deepens your knowledge of Human Resources.
