A CIPD Level 5 diploma/certificate in human resources is a qualification that has been designed and developed by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).

A Level 5 qualification is the equivalent to an undergraduate degree and is the next step for those who have already obtained their Level 3 foundation diploma. The next available CIPD qualification — CIPD Level 7 — is equal to a postgraduate degree.

With a CIPD Level 5 diploma, you’ll study a wider breadth of HR subjects, learning to evaluate the intricacies and effectiveness of HR models and practices. You’ll gain a better understanding of external factors that can have an impact on HR activities and organisations, as well as personally developing your analytical and problem-solving skills.
