NEW CIPD FOUNDATION QUALIFICATION 2021
What Our Candidates Say
Hear what our successful candidates have to say about our support, tutors, online workshops, virtual learning environment and more.
My adviser was very flexible and has been extremely supportive throughout the course. She is very knowledgeable and accessible, always getting back to me really quickly and calming me down when I was panicking about my studies. I funded the Foundation Diploma myself but the investment has already paid off as I have a job that I love and a career in HR to enjoy.
I enjoyed the programme. The workshops were delivered by Joseph Grech, a model facilitator who exemplified all he was teaching, he kept us all engaged and was adept at supporting the mixed group. Dee Gemmell, who was my personal adviser, was outstanding. I found her a great source of information and inspiration.
My experience of Watson Martin has been really positive. My adviser Marissa was very knowledgeable and it was her support that encouraged me to expand further on the units and keep to deadlines. I completed the qualification in nine months instead of ten, which I was delighted about.
