As a rough guide, Level 3 is for those with no or minimal HR experience. It’s perfect if you’re looking for your first HR role.
Level 5 is for those with some HR experience who are looking for a mid-level HR role. It’s also suitable if you’re new to HR but have a degree and want to begin your learning at a higher level.
Level 7 is for those with significant HR experience or an HR degree who are ready to take on postgraduate-level study. It’ll prepare you for strategic senior HR roles.
