CIPD Approved Centre

We are proud to be an approved provider of qualifications from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is the professional body for HR and people development. The organisation has been setting the benchmark for excellence in people and organisation development for more than 100 years.  Our courses range from foundation to advanced level.

Please note that due to COVID-19, our CIPD courses are being delivered remotely.  We will continue to review on an on-going basis, and will update our students again as and when government restrictions ease.

The new CIPD qualifications will launch in August 2021, subject to centre approval from 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."
