Connect your team to CIPD qualifications

Developed through extensive research and the insights of 20,000 experts*, CIPD qualifications are built on an evidence-based model that will guarantee good practice at every level. 

When you choose CIPD qualifications, for your HR and L&D teams of six or more individuals, you’ll:

  • raise the standards of people practice 
  • maximise team potential and increase productivity
  • increase the confidence and gravitas of your people and teams
  • boost your team's motivation and engagement
  • show commitment to investing in people and become an employer of choice 
  • reassure investors, regulators and stakeholders
  • work with us to champion better work and working lives – and connect to the future of the people profession.

When your team studies with us, they’ll:

  • connect to the best expertise and insights in the people profession
  • gain the confidence to solve problems and the credibility to recommend solutions
  • connect to a worldwide network of people professionals through CIPD membership
  • gain access to a wide range of resources including research, insights, and more
  • learn how to respond to the challenges in the workplace – helping your organisation to thrive.

Your team can choose their preferred method of delivery, from online, face-to-face and blended study modes and the option to study part-time (2-20 hours per week) or full-time (21+ hours per week). This flexibility lets them fit their study around other commitments.

We recognise that every organisation has unique goals. That’s why we partner with you to develop the programmes that best fit your priorities.

*CIPD qualifications are based on our Profession Map. This defines the knowledge, skills, values and behaviours that will get the most out of your teams.

Our NEW approach to delivering qualifications in organisations

We’ve partnered with a select number of study centres to create a panel of Organisational Delivery Partners (ODP). Our ODP’s have gone through rigorous approval process so you can be sure that you’ll be dealing with the best – they have a track record of excellence, delivering both outstanding learning experiences and exceptional pass rates. We’ll work with you to select the right ODP for you and your team.

When working with us, you’ll:
  • be assured of delivery and finding the best fit solution
  • have us overseeing the quality of the learning your people will receive
  • be given the opportunity to work with us to build a wider HR curriculum
  • get expert advice and guidance on selecting the right qualifications and study levels
  • get access to a range of qualification delivery options
  • be guaranteed a smooth and personal onboarding programme to help your team get the most out of CIPD membership
  • have access to a dedicated Relationship Manager who’ll support you and your team every step of the way.

Working together, we can inspire the very best in people practice – and help shape the future of our profession.
