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.
