Here’s how three of our students at Foundation, Associate and Advanced levels took full advantage of the flexibility of our online programmes to make great strides in their careers!

Aim high

Izabela Rychter took just 11 months to complete her Level 7  Advanced Diploma in Strategic People Management programme while working full time and has already been promoted to an Employee Relations Specialist. Read how she did it!

With a background in Marketing and no HR experience, Rhian needed some professional training quickly when she took on a new role as People and Culture Manager with a Fintech company. She was delighted to achieve her Level 5 Associate Diploma in People Management with Watson Martin in under a year and says the qualification has given her the confidence to do the job well.

First role in HR

Emma Lovesey wanted to get into HR after graduation but entry level jobs in the profession were few and far between for anyone without experience.  She achieved her Foundation Certificate in HR Practice with Watson Martin ahead of schedule and is now an HR Administrator, a job she secured as she completed the last unit of her CIPD qualification.
