Our CIPD Level 5 Intermediate Diploma in Human Resource Management course is aimed at ambitious HR professionals. It may be ideal if you work in an operational HR role and you are ready to step up into strategic HR. You might also be looking to gain Associate Membership of the CIPD. The programme can be a useful bridge between Level 3 and Level 7 CIPD qualifications. It builds on what you’ve learned and introduces the theory and research you’ll study in depth at Level 7.
You’ll need to commit just 6-8 hours a week to self-directed study, and we break the material down into realistic chunks so you can study when it suits you.
Our blend of learning methods will help you achieve your qualification. These include workshops, use of the virtual learning environment (VLE), webinars (online learning sessions), and individual tutor support for self-directed learning.
You’ll need to attend a day-long workshop once a month, for which you’ll receive the dates well in advance so you have plenty of time to plan. Our teaching style is interactive - we don’t lecture you.
Workshops are your opportunity to discuss course material with your industry colleagues and apply it to real examples. They’re also a great chance to network. Your MOL tutor will encourage discussions that help you get the most from the material. We select knowledgeable HR professionals to support and inspire you throughout the programme.
You can access unlimited support from your tutor over the phone, by email and through our virtual learning environment, on which you’ll find reading materials, research activities and links to videos and podcasts. You’ll have the opportunity to create your own learner blog.
The diploma programme takes just 44 weeks.
The course fee is £3,250. MOL does not charge VAT for this programme. The fee includes workshops, expert tutor support, online materials and activities, textbooks and written materials. It doesn’t include membership of the CIPD (which is payable directly to CIPD and is mandatory for this programme). Our programme enquiries team will be happy to discuss this and your payment options with you.
You’ll gain a CIPD Intermediate Diploma in Human Resource Management, and you'll be able to apply for Associate CIPD Membership. The theory you learn is an excellent basis for Level 7 qualifications. The CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) awards this qualification.
