Why study a CIPD course?
CIPD certification is a no-brainer if you have high ambitions for a career in HR or L&D. Employers, business and HR veterans themselves have, for a long time, viewed CIPD courses as the go-to HR & L&D qualifications. The standards and values that are emphasized throughout the courses, from beginner level 3 to the advanced level 7, covert very well into productive workplaces and happy employers and are therefore highly desired by recruiters. It’s no wonder, then, that a high number of HR advertisements list at least one CIPD qualifications as criteria for employment.
If the above wasn’t enough, CIPD courses don’t just help you get hired, they also give you a leg-up in terms of promotions, pay rises and other aspects of your professional development in your role. According to an ICS survey of past CIPD students, 74% said that CIPD certification played a vital role in their career advancement, with 10% occupying senior HR/L&D roles two years after graduation. It can’t be denied, therefore, that obtaining CIPD qualifications is a foolproof way of arming yourself with the right skill set and the know-how to take an active role in your career progression.
The CIPD membership itself comes with many perks to support you on your path to success. For example, members get routinely invited to various events and conferences to help you expand your understanding of the field and the part you play within it and allow you to expand your professional network by mingling with other like-minded individuals.
