  • are employees or independent consultants within the field of HR/L&D
  • wish to understand the role of HR/L&D in the wider, organisational and environmental context.

  • Understand the structure, culture and functions of an organisation.
  • Understand how HR activities support an organisation.

How is This Course Assessed?

These are not traditionally taught qualifications but focus more on specific personal or organisational objectives rather than solely academic theory. Units are assessed by reviewing written work based narrative, supported by evidence. Evidence takes many forms and is compiled in a portfolio that is assessed by Watson Martin experts and verified by CIPD external verifiers before awarding the qualification. There are no exams or research projects at this level.
