Kelta HR is a corporate member of the CIPD. The Sussex and Surrey local CIPD branches have an excellent annual programme of events.
There is a wealth of information on the CIPD website about the suite of HR qualifications. Here we just want to give a flavour.
CIPD qualifications are available to study at various levels, to reflect the content and define what HR practitioners need to know (knowledge), do (activities) and deliver (behaviours).
The qualifications are offered at three levels and highlight the importance of understanding the business and international context within which HR and L&D operates and drives sustainable organisational performance.
Below is a summary of the qualifications currently available.
However, for a more in depth understanding please refer to the CIPD website directly.
Award in HR or L&D Essentials- or those who are aspiring to, or embarking on, a career in HR or Learning and Development (L&D)
Certificate in HR Practice (CHRP) - pre March2010 this was the CPP
Certificate in Learning and Development Practice (CLDP)- formally the CTP
Diploma in HR or L&D practice - additional units are available to broaden skills and knowledge and to gain a Diploma in HR or L&D practice (DHRP or DLDP)
Successful completion of CHRP and CLDP gives candidates the knowledge required to apply for Associate CIPD Membership.
Certificate / Diploma in HR Management (CHRM)
Certificate / Diploma in HR Development (CHRD)
For those candidates who work in roles above level 3. Line managers with people management or training responsibilities may consider these units useful for their career development.
Advanced Diploma in HR Management (DHRM)
Advanced Diploma in HR Development (DHRD)
This level gives candidates the knowledge required to become Chartered Members or a Chartered Fellow. The upgrading process will need to be undertaken.
Membership and qualifications were separated out in 2010.
Membership is all about demonstrating that you have the knowledge, and carry out the activities in the workplace.
There are only 3 professional membership grades recognised by the CIPD which are detailed below.
An Associate member works in a role giving vital support to key areas of HR, using their skills and knowledge to support HR leaders and managers.
All those who were previously Licentiate (Part Qualified) or Graduate Members will be automatically transferred to the Associate level membership when they renew their membership.
A Chartered Member demonstrates the expertise needed to plan and manage generalist or specialist HR operations, combining professional knowledge, skills and insights, with the understanding of an organisation's context and structure, creating and delivering HR services and solutions that drive their organisation.
To upgrade from Associate CIPD to Chartered CIPD membership is purely based on impact in the workplace and the business context and levers that candidates evidence rather than length of service.
A Chartered Fellow holds a strategic position and demonstrates the expertise to lead the key areas of HR. They determine, develop and implement HR strategies, plans and policies to promote and achieve organisational success.
Membership is again based on impact in the workplace and the business context and levers that candidates evidence rather than length of service.
