Course Description

Advanced Level Certificate in Human Resources (Level 7)

Advanced Level Certificate in Human Resources (Level 7) - Open Course

This is a CIPD postgraduate level course in Human Resources that is completed in one year. The course is flexible for those who choose the competency option. Participants will develop their skills and knowledge in business and people leadership, as well as talent management and development as related to HR. The emphasis of this course is on strategic thinking in order to ensure that HR/HRD management contributes to the success of the organisation.

In order to complete this Advanced Certificate course participants need to do four modules. Each of the course modules will run at different times throughout the year. Depending on the start date, participants will start the course at the next date the module they choose will start.

Participants have the choice of:

  • Part time evening course (44 evenings, 17:45-21:15 once a week)
  • Weekend block course (20 days, 09:30-17:45, delivered over 10 weekends, once a month)
  • Competency route

Through its blended approach to learning Acacia Learning provides a combination of:

1) Formative assessments which are assessed informally through the completion of on-line tasks (activities and social interaction through ‘communities of practice’) and delivery (teaching, learning, action sets, case studies, presentations for example).

2) Summative assessments during which core modules will be assessed through 100% of learning outcomes. The modules ‘HRM in Context’ and ‘Leading, Managing and Developing People’ are nationally set and marked exams. Advanced Certificate students may decide not to choose the exam modules. Other modules will utilise the CIPD Bank Assessments.

The modules will use the CIPD Generic Assessment Criteria with modules graded as: Fail (below 50%), Pass (50-59%), Merit (60-69%) and Distinction (70% +).
