The fully online CIPD Level 5 Intermediate Diploma in Human Resource Management is a comprehensive and in-depth course that'll allow you to advance to more senior HR roles. It's ideal if you're seeking to build a career in HR management, or if you're already working in HR management and want to expand your knowledge and formalise your expertise.
The qualification sits at undergraduate level and is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the largest professional body for HR in Europe.
This CIPD Level 5 course is 100% online and will examine the role of an HR manager and a human resources department within the context of the entire business. You'll look at the different aspects of the role and how the various functions are managed and coordinated.
The course will develop your ability to evaluate the effectiveness of different HR models and practices, and increase your understanding of the external factors that impact HR activities and organisations. Throughout the course, you'll also be developing your planning, analytical and problem-solving skills.
Using specially designed study materials and with the support of your tutor, mentor and student support team, you'll learn about various aspects of HR, including reward management and resource and talent planning. You'll also study employment law and contemporary developments in employment relations.
Suitability - Who should attend?
This course is set at Level 5 and is therefore equivalent to the 2nd year of a degree.
The Level 5 Intermediate Diploma in Human Resource Management is ideal if you:
- Are looking to develop a career in HR management
- Need to understand the role of HR in the wider organisational and environmental context
- Seek to further develop your professional HR knowledge after studying a CIPD Level 3 Foundation qualification
- Aspire to become a professional member of the CIPD as an Associate Member
It covers more units than the Level 5 Certificate, so it'll give you a more comprehensive knowledge of HR management.
Outcome / Qualification etc.
Once you've completed the Intermediate Diploma in Human Resource Management, you'll be equipped with the knowledge and skills required for a variety of more senior HR roles.
