The Course

The CIPD Level 3 Certificate in People Practice is one of a NEW range of courses offered by the CIPD. It is a foundation-level, professional qualification based on the CIPD Profession Map.  Each unit has clear link to the Map which was launched in 2018, having been developed in collaboration with a wide range of experts working at the heart of the profession. It sets the international benchmark for the people profession and provides a strong foundation to give people professionals the confidence and capabilities to guide their decision-making, actions and behaviours.
This qualification introduces the student to a wide range of relevant knowledge and expertise in people practice. It is suited to those students who are studying for, aspiring to, or embarking on, a career in people practice, are working in a people practice support role and wish to develop their knowledge and deliver immediate and short-term value for their organisation and wish to develop the specialist knowledge, skills and understanding required to be a people professional.
