Learn more about CIPD

The CIPD qualification is very highly regarded in the Human Resources profession.  Many employers use CIPD accreditation as a ‘benchmark’ when recruiting externally, so the qualification is very important in that respect. Membership to CIPD would lead to high regard within the organisation, with greater respect for the work I do."
