The Level 3 qualification, which leads to CIPD foundation-membership, includes four core-units designed to provide a solid grounding in the 'people profession'. The primary purpose of this qualification is to develop learners’ knowledge and skills to build their expertise in an human resource, or learning and development role, inspiring them to undertake tactical tasks that deliver value.
Learners will build their confidence and knowledge - aimed at being able to contribute to immediate colleagues, customers and the organisation; supporting change and driving impact, to create immediate, and short-term, value. They will gather information to use in their role and use this to understand their work, organisation and profession more deeply. This can then be applied to the world of work as well as being used as a vehicle to start their journey to CIPD membership at the appropriate level to complement career and professional development.

  What You Will Learn

The CIPD Level 3 Certificate in People Practice is the new foundation-level HR qualification. You will gain valuable and practical insights into key areas in 'people-practice', including core behaviours for people-professionals, and essentials in the field, including employee-relations. You will also gain an understanding of the key aspects of change and culture in a business context, as well as the principles of analytics. In short — everything you need to start off, or revitalise, your career in 'people-practice'.

  Entry Requirements

The CIPD Level 3 Foundation Certificate is designed for learners aged 18+ who want to learn about 'people practice'. Although there are no formal entry requiremets, an initial diagnostics to ensure that this qualification is appropriate for the learner will be carried-out.

Four summative assessments: assessment for this qualification is employer-driven, and aimed at real scenarios that learners may encounter in their future career.
