CIPD Level 5 HR Course Details

The CIPD Level 5 Diploma is designed for those who have some experience in human resources and wish to build a career in people management.

During this course, you will build a stronger understanding of how to manage and develop the people management function within your organisation. 

You will gain the skills needed to evaluate contemporary theories and models and apply them strategically to enhance the performance of any organisation you work for. You will have an understanding of the external environment in which your company is operating and how this compares to other sectors of the economy.

Our academic and practical experience in delivering the CIPD Level 5 Diploma and modules will provide you with a clear progression pathway within any people management role.

The CIPD Level 5 qualifications are internationally recognised and equivalent to undergraduate degree level. Gaining a CIPD Level 5 Diploma in People Management means that you will be able to upgrade to CIPD Associate Membership and use 'Assoc CIPD' on your CV and LinkedIn profile.

In order to qualify to study the CIPD HR Level 5 Associate Diploma course, you must have at least one of the following: 

  • Some HR experience in an entry-level HR role
  • Experience undertaking HR-related duties in a non-HR role (as a manager, for example)
  • A university degree and the desire to study HR at a more advanced level than the CIPD Level 3 Foundation Certificate

If English is your second language, we recommend that you have achieved one of the following (or an equivalent):

IELTS: 6.0 overall score with a minimum of 5.5 in each category
TOEFL: 79 overall score with a minimum of 17 in each category
Cambridge: Grade C or above

However, this is not mandatory and we are happy to review your case on an individual basis.

You will be expected to complete a written assignment, up to 4,000 words, at the end of each module that you study, allowing you to demonstrate your newly acquired knowledge and skills, which you have mastered during the modules.

Your assignments will then be be submitted online and marked by our assessors, while moderated by CIPD.

Once you have successfully passed your assignments, you will then be awarded your new CIPD qualification. Along with that, you will also be able to progress to the next level and begin your Level 7 Advanced Diploma in Strategic People Management
