Accrediting organisations

The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) offering the ability to fast track your career through membership.

As part of our accreditation, all students attend a series of compulsory HR skills development workshops. These workshops focus on your personal skills capacity building as a future HR specialist. The workshops are non-credit bearing in order to maximise their developmental nature. You can join CIPD as a student member and once you have passed all course units (including the HR skills development workshops and the dissertation), you can update your CIPD membership to Associate Member. After you have applied your knowledge in a workplace setting, you can then apply for Chartered Membership.
