Course Description

Advanced Diploma in Human Resource Development (Level 7)CIPD Advanced Diploma in Human Resource Development - Open Course 

This is a CIPD postgraduate level diploma course in Human Resources that participants can complete within a span of two years. In relation to the HR environment, participants will develop their skills and knowledge in business and leadership, as well as talent management and development. The emphasis of this course is on strategic thinking in order to ensure that HR/HRD management contributes to the success of the organisation.

Participants have the following choices in attending the classes:

  • Part time evening course (88 evenings, 17:45-21:15 once a week over two years)
  • Weekend block course (40 days, 09:30-17:45, delivered over 20 weekends, once a month over two years)
  • 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, and presentations).
  2. Summative assessments:
    • Year 1 Modules - all first year modules will be assessed through 100% of learning outcomes. The modules 7HRC and 7LMP are nationally set and marked exams. The remaining modules will utilise the CIPD Bank Assessments.
    • Year 2 Modules - minimum of 50% of learning outcomes from 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% +).

Participants can start on whichever module is the most convenient to them and they will have access to tutors and fellow learners throughout their time studying.
