What is CIPD?

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is the world’s largest professional body for those involved in the management and development of people.

It has over 130,000 members across 120 countries, and 12,000 professionals train with CIPD qualifications and certifications each year. It's the gold standard for professional quality in Human Resources and Learning and Development.

This means that CIPD qualifications are highly respected and sought-after by employers. Many hiring managers include them as a prerequisite for HR jobs, and where they're not a necessity they'll put you head and shoulders above the competition.

What are Awards, Certificates and Diplomas?

CIPD Awards are bite-sized qualifications which will give you in-depth knowledge of a specific, narrow subject area. They're ideal if you want to refresh, build on or solidify your existing professional knowledge of a specific aspect of HR or L&D.

CIPD Certificates are medium-scope qualifications which cover essential subject areas in detail.

CIPD Diplomas are the most extensive and desirable CIPD qualifications; they cover more subject areas than Certificates, giving you a comprehensive knowledge of all topics.
