Course Info

The Level 3 CIPD Foundation certificate in people practice provides an introduction to the HR profession and the key aspects of HR practice.

The qualification is essential for anyone who is just embarking on the first stage of their HR career, or is in an administrative or line management role, which includes some basic HR activity associated with recruiting and managing people. The course provides all the basic knowledge required, as well as providing a great opportunity to discuss your challenges and experiences as a new HR practitioner with a group of peers, from a range of organisational contexts.  It takes quite a practical approach, and is assessed through a mix of written and skills-based assignments.


The delivery of the qualification includes the use of guided study through online media, class room delivery, workshops, observation, group and case study work, with an expectation of weekly private study.

Links to local HR network events, the CIPD student conference, visiting speakers and a visit to an employment tribunal are additional aspects of this course.
