What is the CIPD?

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is the professional body for all those involved in the management and development of people. Currently there are more than 135,000 individual members, and achieving a qualification from the CIPD is now seen as a fundamental requirement for professionals in the fields of HR/HRP/HRM/HRD. 
 
Many organisations now view the CIPD Foundation Programmers' as the “International HR Passport”.
 
 
Why Oakwood?
 
Oakwood continues to work hard to understand and respect issues relating to local culture. This is an important factor which is incorporated throughout our business philosophy all the way to our delivery methodology.
We run very interactive programmes. Clearly there is some theory involved but we ensure that we then use this to demonstrate how this is implemented with practical applications back in the workplace. We try to ensure our students remain engaged and have some fun along the way. We believe very strongly that people learn most when they have a smile on their face.
 
What about CIPD Membership?
 
Whilst studying for the qualification you must be a member of the CIPD. On completion of the qualification you will receive a CIPD Diploma. You will be automatically upgraded to Associate membership by the CIPD and this enables you to use the designation “Assoc CIPD” after your name on business cards etc
