This entry-level qualification is perfect for professionals working in, or looking to find, their first role in the people profession in the human resources sector. The people profession is a fast-paced, global profession where every day is different. Whatever role students choose, they’ll enjoy a unique opportunity to drive positive change in the world of work and progress in their careers.

This programme will provide students with a solid grounding in the sector and it will develop the knowledge, skills, and behaviours to deliver tasks that benefit the organisation at an operational level. It will also develop the confidence to support positive change for both colleagues and organisations.

Course leader, Regina Wojciechowska commented on the achievement:

I am delighted to lead the new CIPD Certificate in People Practice course and the positive contribution the programme offers to the professional development of our students. In addition to receiving a CIPD Foundation Membership upon completion, the course’s teaching and learning approach supports students to achieve their professional goals and prepare them for the future workplace.

In such an uncertain business environment, the programme has been described as being innovative and practical to enable professionals to develop the expertise to support change and make an impact in an organisation whilst gaining the confidence to drive their career forward. An interesting feature of the programme is the real-life scenarios, acquiring core behaviours derived from the CIPD’s new Profession Map, which is based on the cumulative insights of thousands of experts and outstanding academic support.

The CIPD membership will give students a badge of professionalism that’s internationally recognised, showcasing the knowledge and impact within the people profession. Nottingham Business School’s goal is to build HR professionals credibility in the people profession, show individuals are serious about their development and highlight their strong foundation of knowledge.
