Level 5 is for those with some HR experience who are looking for a mid-level HR role. It’s also suitable if you’re new to HR but have a degree and want to begin your learning at a higher level.

Level 7 is for those with significant HR experience or an HR degree who are ready to take on postgraduate-level study. It’ll prepare you for strategic senior HR roles.

However, we know everyone’s situation is different. Our expert CIPD advisors will talk through your experience, education and ambitions to ensure you’re choosing the right course.
