New for 2021

New CIPD qualifications are being introduced in 2021. Based on the new Profession Map, the qualifications focus on the knowledge and behaviours required to create value and make an impact in the changing world of work. The new qualifications set the international standard for people professionals. We are planning to offer these from September 2021 (pending CIPD approval). At this stage we are taking expressions of interest. More information will be available once approval is confirmed.
