CIPD Level 7 Advanced Qualifications

CIPD Level 7 qualifications are the advanced level of the Human Resources and Learning & Development courses awarded by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. They sit on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) at Level 7 and are therefore equivalent to Postgraduate Level. The level 7 is the highest level qualification offered by CIPD providing the pathway to Chartered Membership (Chartered Member or Chartered Fellow).

Further developing your HR/L&D knowledge and expertise, these courses are ideal for anyone:

  1. responsible for HR decision making within an organisation at an operational, tactical or more strategic level
  2. with responsibility for the HR function and activities within an organisation, including HR development
  3. working as an independent or employed HRM/HRD consultant, supporting organisations in meeting their goals
  4. aspiring to become a Chartered member of CIPD

Advanced level CIPD qualifications will equip you with the essential knowledge needed to develop and implement strategic and creative HR solutions which drive organisational growth and performance.

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

  1. Head of HR/L&D
  2. HR/L&D Director
  3. Senior HR Manager
  4. HR/L&D Consultant
  5. Recruitment Manager
  6. People Development Manager

What is the difference between the CIPD Level 7 Certificate and the CIPD Level 7 Diploma?

The Level 7 Advanced Certificate is a popular medium scope qualification which covers essential subject areas. However, the most comprehensive qualification covering the most units at this level is the Level 7 Diploma. The diploma covers more subjects and therefore widens and deepens your knowledge of Human Resources.

You can also study an individual module from the diploma with our Level 7 Awards.
