CIPD Level 5 Intermediate Qualification in L&D

“Boost your HR knowledge and skills to evaluate the effectiveness of different HR models and practices”

CIPD Intermediate Certificate in L&D

Watson Martin (WM) is a leading provider of Human Resources and Learning and
Development (L&D) qualifications. We offer a range of CIPD programmes delivered by highly qualified practitioners with an unrivalled level of strategic experience and professionalism in HR and L&D.

A CIPD Intermediate qualification in L&D is aimed at existing and aspiring L&D Managers and will help you develop an understanding of how L&D contributes to business success.

We have supported candidates through to successful completion at all levels of CIPD qualification since 2004. In addition, we have extensive experience in guiding candidates through various study options as well as advising on CIPD membership upgrade and providing HR consultancy services.

We consistently achieve the highest CIPD Quality Assurance rating and are one of only very few CIPD centres approved to offer competency based assessment (mixed mode) qualifications.

“The level 5 qualification, which is set at the level of a University degree is ideal for all those currently employed in advisory level roles who would like to develop HR Management skills.”

This qualification is ideal if you:

  • Aspire to become a professional member of the CIPD, as an Associate member
  • Seek to enhance and develop your professional L&D knowledge after studying a CIPD Level 3 programme
  • Are contributing to L&D decision making at an operational or strategic level and seek to understand the role of L&D in the wider context.
  • Are an L&D professional in a team who has a responsibility for delivering learning solutions.
  • Are responsible for the L&D function and activities within an organisation without a specialist function.

Flexibility and Control of Your Learning

Management Excellence

“High quality learning at your pace, anywhere, anytime with ongoing support from a personal adviser”

Choosing the right qualification can be a bit daunting but we are here to help you select the correct path. Our expert advisers know everything there is to know about CIPD qualifications and can help every step of the way.

We work hard to ensure candidates are matched to the correct qualification and then work with you to help achieve your ultimate goal.

To support your learning, you will have 24/7 access to our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), a comprehensive online library of quality reference materials. Created, curated and managed by experienced HR practitioners, it provides a single robust, secure and integrated platform to access a personalised learning experience.

My experience of Watson Martin Partnership is extremely positive. It is a very professional organisation and I received a high level of service. Communication is excellent and whenever I had a query or needed more information I had someone who could help me.”

Michael Dawkins

“As soon as I started speaking to my personal adviser I realised that she knew her stuff like the back of her hand and this gave me confidence. We arranged our Skype calls every three to four weeks before an assignment when I would be squirrelling down notes but there was also communication through email when she would always respond quickly. She was totally supportive.”

WORKSHOPS

Programme duration: 12 months

If you prefer planned interactive sessions and have exposure to other learners and their organisations’ practices then our workshops are for you. The workshop programme provides an ideal learning environment in which expert trainers present and facilitate practical activities, group discussions and networking. Programmes include regular telephone conversations, e-mail exchanges and/or meetings with a personal adviser who is allocated at the start of your programme.

ONLINE

Programme duration: 12 months

Some of our candidates prefer to learn at their own pace from home, an office or even while on the move commuting. If this is you, then our online programme will meet your learning needs. The beauty of this delivery model is you can study anywhere at anytime via accessing the wide range of learning materials on the VLE. As well as the VLE access, during your programme you will schedule regular one-to-one sessions, in working hours, with your adviser to work on your assignments.
