Why is this course right for you?

Human resource professionals and managers operate within increasingly complex and changing organisational, environmental, technological, legal and global circumstances.

This short postgraduate-level course examines the principal internal and external contexts of contemporary organisations and how leading organisations of every size and sector respond to turbulent and uncertain environments.

You'll learn that corporate and HR decisions are often shaped by forces beyond managers' immediate control, and explore the implications of this for your professional practice and development.

Entry requirements

This is an Advanced Level 7 course, so you should have a good level of HR experience and be prepared to undertake postgraduate-level study. 

A degree-based educational background would also be beneficial.

If English is your second language, we recommend you have an IELTS 6.5/ESOL Level 2 or equivalent, but we're happy to review your case on an individual basis.

 

Course content

The course consists of one module from the CIPD Level 7 Diploma taken as a standalone qualification.

It's fully online and is assessed by one in-person exam. 

Please contact your local British Council to find your nearest CIPD exam venue before enrolling.

You'll learn to understand, analyse, and critically evaluate:

  • Contemporary organisations and their principal environments
  • The managerial and business environment within which HR professionals work
  • How organisational and HR strategies are shaped by and developed in response to internal and external environmental factors
  • The market and competitive environments of organisations and how organisational leaders and the HR function respond to them
  • Globalisation and international forces and how they shape and impact on organisational and HR strategies and HR practices
  • Demographic, social and technological trends and how they shape and impact organisational and HR strategies and HR practices
  • Government policy and legal regulation and how these shape and impact on organisational and HR strategies and HR practices

If you'd like to study a broader range of topics and prepare for strategic senior HR roles, we recommend the comprehensive Level 7 Diploma or mid-length Level 7 Certificate.

Please note that where the course discusses legislation and policy, this will be based on UK law.

 

Qualification

On completion of this course, you'll achieve a CIPD Level 7 Advanced Award in Human Resources, and your certificate from CIPD will reflect this.

The subject you studied will be specified on your attached transcript.

Please note that this Award won't qualify you for CIPD associate membership.

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.

However, we know everyone’s situation is different. Our expert CIPD advisors will talk through your experience, education and ambitions to ensure you’re choosing the right course.

Award, Certificate and Diploma indicate the length and scope of your CIPD qualification.

CIPD Awards are bite-sized courses covering one unit from the Diploma. They're useful if you only want to learn about one specific area of HR, such as employment law.

CIPD Certificates are well-rounded mid-length qualifications, covering essential units from the Diploma.

CIPD Diplomas are the most comprehensive and desirable CIPD qualifications, covering everything you need to know to excel in your career. Most students choose the Diploma.

At each CIPD Level, there is a Diploma, a Certificate, and a variety of Awards.

Diplomas and Certificates give you CIPD professional membership; Awards don’t.
