Diploma in Human Resources Practice (CIPD) / Acmhainní Daonna

Members of the CIPD who have completed either the CIPD Foundation Certificate in Human Resource Practice (or the previous CIPD Certificate in Personnel Practice*) and are working in the field of Human Resources and wish to develop their knowledge and skills; OR have the responsibility for Human Resources activities and decisions within an organisation without a specialist function.

This diploma is designed for people who have successfully completed the CIPD Foundation Level Certificate in Human Resource Practice. The course is structured to progress the CIPD HR Profession Map membership criteria. It provides as such a more in-depth understanding of HR in a business context, and enables you to develop the knowledge and skills to further increase your contribution to the HR function.

The course should also be of interest to those who wish to do a suite of stand-alone modules.

Upon successful completion of the programme (and already a holder of the CIPD Foundation Certificate in Human Resource Practice), you will be awarded the CIPD Foundation Diploma in HR Practice. Acquiring the (CIPD) Diploma in Human Resource Practice Qualification is therefore another significant step in achieving further recognition and advancement in your HR career.

Assessments for the programme are designed to equip you with the ability to apply learning back in your organisation and in your work role.

Accordingly, assessment is by:
