The Syllabus is set by the CIPD but we translate those requirements into a unique combination of activities that give you the confidence to progress and achieve your qualification.

Through our team of CIPD Tutors and our Virtual Learning Campus, you will be taught the latest thinking and best practice within Human Resource and Personnel and Development whilst being able to study from home.

Our Advanced Diploma in HR Management course is taught via a blend of online and classroom learning, allowing you to study when and where you want but benefit at the same time from a structured learning framework, giving you the perfect balance of flexibility and support.

You will also be expected to commit around 8-10 hours per week for study, during which time you will have full support from your tutor via phone, email and online. This method of learning is designed to provide you with all the benefits of the classroom, but without the restrictions.

The Level 7 course includes 9 face-to-face workshops, which are included in the package. These workshop days are an excellent opportunity to meet your Tutors and fellow Students and create a network of support to use throughout your course. These workshops will be held in London.

The sessions are all held on Saturday or Sunday to allow maximum flexibility for students.
