Seasons Greetings from us all at Watson Martin

We would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us at Watson Martin.  Instead of sending Christmas cards we are making a donation to Save the Children to help children and their families around the world. 2018 has been an exciting year for our business and we would like to share with you some of the highlights…


A huge congratulations to the 328 Watson Martin candidates who became CIPD qualified over the last 12 months. Your qualification will give you the confidence to take your career to the next level and guarantees you will stand out from the crowd. And to those of you who are just starting out or progressing your CIPD journey, all the best for your studies in the year ahead. With Watson Martin’s 99% pass rate across all CIPD levels you are in good hands.

Our expert team

Our company is growing and we have strengthened the team to ensure all our candidates continue to be supported by the best HR and L&D experts in the business. But don’t take our word for it. Have a peek at the excellent reviews we get on Coursecheck to gain a flavour of the support our students receive from their advisers and the quality of our workshops. We have received over 250 reviews to date giving us a 4.5 Star rating!

HR Apprenticeships

A warm welcome to all our new HR Apprentices! Watson Martin became a RoATP* provider in January and we are now working with large organisations and other training providers to deliver end-to-end bespoke HR Apprenticeship programmes. Check out the new pages on our website for more information on how we can help your organisation grow a talented and qualified workforce.

HR Learning Bites

From the latest developments in Employment Law to tips on how to be a Great Manager, our HR Learning Bites information webinar series has gone from strength to strength since its launch in April. Each session provides practical tips and advice from a Watson Martin adviser, all of whom have a wealth of HR and L&D experience. Recordings of all four webinars are available on our website along with a useful Q&A learning resource.

In-company training

As well as being a CIPD centre, Watson Martin offers a wide range of in-company training courses and qualifications delivered by subject matter experts and tailored to the needs of the organisation.  The programmes cover a multitude of topics and are most cost effective for six or more employees from the same company.

Value for money

Watson Martin CIPD qualifications continue to provide great value for money. Our prices include a choice of workshops or online learning, a dedicated CIPD qualified tutor for every candidate, flexible start dates and interest free payment plans for self-funders.  And if you refer a friend and they book on one of CIPD programmes, we will send you both Amazon gift cards worth up to £200. With some fantastic special offers coming up in our January sale, there has never been a better time to become CIPD qualified.

For further information about CIPD qualifications, Apprenticeships or in-company courses, please contact our advisers on 020 7932 2760.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish each of you a wonderful Christmas and a very bright future ahead in 2019!

With warm regards from Melanie Martin, Heather Watson and all the team here at Watson Martin
