Course breakdown
 
All apprentices will be required to apply directly to the CIPD for Student Membership, for which there is an annual fee. Without membership, students will not be able to achieve the CIPD qualification. For further details please go to: https://www.cipd.co.uk/membership. If successful you and the employer can discuss who will cover the membership fee.
 
College attendance is 4 hours on a Tuesday, we run two classes on that day: 1-5pm and 5-9pm, you and your employer can choose which one best fits the working pattern. These class hours come under your working hours. Attendance at College may be required to complete some parts of the knowledge units.
This training will not be interrupted by COVID-19 measures as we are teaching apprentices using Microsoft Teams when they are unable to attend college.
 
Apprentices build a portfolio of work and work place assessors will be in regular contact to provide support, and to arrange on-site visits to observe the apprentices’ ability and skills in their daily role. It is important for the apprentice to take ownership of their own learning by seeking out opportunities to gain new skills on the job with the employer. Your assessor will liaise with you to set up mutually convenient times for consultation and assessment visits at your place of work.
Apprentices and employers will be enrolled on our award-winning e-Portfolio system “OneFile” to enable both parties to upload evidence of learning and to track progression through the programme.
It is a Government requirement for you to spend 20% of your apprenticeship working towards your “Off the Job Learning” – off the job learning can consist of college attendance, homework/coursework, project related work, employer training, mentoring, and coaching – plus a number of other tasks within the role.

  1. A consultative project covering the knowledge, skills, and competence in your chosen options in a HR environment.
  2. Professional Discussion (Apprentice to demonstrate that they can apply the broad range of knowledge, skills and behaviours in the Standard).
