Professional qualifications[edit]

The CIPD's Professional Standards govern entry to CIPD membership and form the basis of all their qualifications. Most CIPD qualifications lead to a professional grade of membership. A network of education centres offers a range of full-time, part-time and flexible learning courses. The CIPD Professional Development Scheme (PDS) is seen as the leading qualification in the field of Human Resource Management[9][10][11] in the UK and is held by many UK and international HR directors.[12][13]

Level 3 Foundation qualifications[edit]

This level is comparable to the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) level 3 in England and comaparable to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) level 4. Level 3 Foundation qualifications replace and are equivalent to the previous Certificate in Personnel Practice (CPP) and Certificate in Training Practice (CPP).

A Practitioner level course at a Level 7 or Postgraduate qualification that cover particular fields of study has been introduced. Each field with the exception of Applied Personnel and Development Standards requires completion of assignments and exams in four fields to be successfully awarded the Diploma in Personnel and Development and the award of Graduate membership. Successful completion of any one field leads to Licentiate membership and award of a Postgraduate Certificate.

The CIPD’s research covers all aspects of working life, from recruitment to employment law, and work-life balance to productivity. The CIPD's current research projects include: coaching,[14] cross-boundary working, employer branding, helping people learn, improving health through HRM, information and consultation, the relationship between HR and recruitment agencies, reward and smart working.

Public policy[edit]

The CIPD, in partnership with its members, has a duty to represent the public policy interests of the HR community. The CIPD uses its research and the professional experience of its members to develop pragmatic, rather than political responses to public policy. Some of the CIPD's policy advisors are well respected and frequently cited in the media,[15][16][17] notably John Philpott, the CIPD's chief economist.[18][19]

The CIPD releases a quarterly Labour Market Outlook survey [20] with KPMG, containing the latest unemployment figures and trends.


CIPD branches are run by volunteers who work to provide learning and networking opportunities, events, information services, and membership and upgrading help for their members. There are 48 geographical branches in the UK and Ireland.

International Activities[edit]

The CIPD runs a training programme for international HR practitioners and has links with European and World Federations of HR. The CIPD hosted the 2008 WFPMA World HR Congress.

Based in Dublin, CIPD Ireland has over 6,000 members spread across 7 regional branches.

Digital services[edit]

The CIPD website provides podcasts, an RSS news feed, blogs and a professional discussion forum.

CIPD Publishing
