CIPD Student


Human resources (HR) professionals need to be able to present a viable and realistic case for improvement based on sound work-based research and an understanding of what is considered good practice. This core unit develops the skills of research and enquiry in order to enable learners to identify appropriate data sources to support an investigation into an area of HR practice and to synthesise and apply this data, to evaluate the role of HR in business and strategy formulation and implementation, and to prepare and present a business case for improvement.

The new Intermediate Level Awards in Human Resources from CIPD are set at undergraduate level and will develop your ability to evaluate the effectiveness of different HR models and practices and increase your understanding of the external factors that impact upon HR activities and organisations.


Structure of Qualification

To achieve an Intermediate Award in Human Resources, you need a total of between 3 and 12 credits. The Intermediate Award in Using Information in Human Resources has 4 credits.

Key Topics

The learning outcomes for this unit are shown below. By the end of the unit, you will be able to:

  1. Know how to identify and scrutinise appropriate HR data sources
  2. Be able to conduct small-scale research and analyse the findings
  3. Be able to draw meaningful conclusions and evaluate options for change
  4. Know how to deliver clear, business-focused reports on an HR issue.

This is a Level 5 programme and is equivalent in level to the second year of an undergraduate degree programme.

The Intermediate Level Awards in Human Resources are for those who:

  1. Aspire to work in HR or already work in HR and want to study a recognised undergraduate level qualification
  2. Work in an HR support role and want to formalise their experience and progress their career by developing their knowledge and skills at a higher level

If English is not your first language, you will be required to have an IELTS score of 6 or above.

As all the units form part of the Intermediate Certificate / Diploma in Human Resource Management, you can also use your Award to work towards meeting the knowledge requirements for CIPD professional membership by taking additional units to achieve the full Intermediate Certificate or Diploma. 

On completion, you'll receive a CIPD Intermediate Award in Human Resources.

Assessment for this unit is by way of a 2000 word written research project proposal.
