Did you know?


I really enjoyed meeting new people from similar backgrounds and I found it helpful discussing how their HR departments worked in comparison to my organisation. By the end of year, we became a very close group and supported each other during our assignments.

We attended an Employment Tribunal which was a real eye opener and also the CIPD Festival of Work in London. For this, we were able to meet different organisations from HR and were shown products and services which could benefit our own organisations.

Sharon's experience and knowledge in HR was incredible, often discussing her own experiences when talking about a particular subject linked to our assignments. She also helped us understand the assignments by breaking the questions down through group work, webinars and videos so that everyone's preferred learning methods were met.

When I first started my role in HR, I had no previous experience or knowledge. Level 3 has given me an overall introduction into the different areas of HR and I have gained skills in completing interviews, appraisals and presenting to an audience. I now feel more confident in my role and can take on certain tasks whereas before, I would not have put myself forward.

I am keen to progress into an Adviser role within my company and I am now studying for my Level 5 in HR.


Studying the Level 3 CIPD qualification has given me much more confidence in my role and put me in touch with a network of people and organisations that I can share and gain best practice from.

They were all a really positive group of people, and we encouraged and inspired each other to do well and achieve on the course.

My tutor Sharon was really supportive throughout the course, was extremely knowledgeable and had a wealth of experience in HR so I could relate directly to what she was teaching.
