It's time to get ahead in your career with up to 20% off Level 7 CIPD courses.
The CIPD Level 7 Advanced Diploma in Human Resource Management is the most comprehensive and advanced HR qualification offered by CIPD. It's replaced their flagship CIPD Professional Development Scheme and is equivalent to a Master's degree.
This fully online course, accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), is perfect if you're in an HR management role and want to formalise and build on your experience and knowledge, or if you're responsible for HR activities and planning and need the specialist skills to excel in your role.
A Level 7 CIPD qualification is also ideal if you aspire to become a Chartered Member of CIPD, as it'll set you on the pathway to Chartered Member (MCIPD) or Chartered Fellow (FCIPD) status.
This Advanced CIPD qualification is the most widely-respected and sought-after HR qualification, and will demonstrate to employers that you hold yourself to the highest standards and are committed to your professional development.
You'll study resource and talent management, employment law, and reward management in depth, and learn how to manage employment relations and investigate business issues from an HR perspective.
You'll gain a deep understanding of the environment and contexts within which HR practitioners, management and workers interact, and become familiar with current research on approaches to human resource management and development.
