The Details

**In January 2021, CIPD launched a new Profession Map with brand new qualifications to equip Human Resources practitoners with the knowledge, behaviours and values underpinning the profession. We're an accredited centre, and students joining our CIPD programmes in September 2021 will commence the new programmes**

This qualification is designed to introduce students to a wide range of relevant knowledge and expertise in people practice.

It is suited to those students who:
- are studying, aspiring to, or embarking on, a career in people practice
- are working in a people practice support role and wish to develop their knowledge
- wish to develop the specialist knowledge, skills and understanding required to be a people professional.

What will I learn?

The Level 3 Foundation Certificate in People Practice is awarded by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, the leading human resources professional body.

The qualification introduces you to areas such as:
- Business, culture and change
- Principles of analytics
- Core behaviours for people professionals
- Essentials of people practice

You will develop an understanding of the key external influences that impact on businesses and the context within which they operate. You will gain an understanding of the importance of using data, the different types of data measurement and how these are used to inform decision making. You will evaluate ethical values and contextualise them within your work, specifying the ways in which you conform to associated regulation and law.

Each of the four modules are separately assessed, either via written documents looking at how your own organisation operates or through a practical-skills-based assignment using a supplied case study.

Other Important Info

This qualification can be delivered flexibly, and is available as blended learning with a mixture of in-class and online sessions with your tutor, or as a fully online course.

Lectures, case studies, group activities, discussions and role play exercises are used to provide an interactive learning experience

In addition to the course fees, students will need to pay for any books they purchase from the optional recommended book list.
