Replacing the Certificate in Personnel Practice (CPP), the new Foundation Level Certificate is ideal for professionals wanting to gain a wide range of relevant practical skills, and who want to further their career with a professional qualification.

The Certificate in Human Resource Practice (CHRP) provides a firm foundation in all areas of HR. It will help you to develop essential HR skills and give you the confidence to be more effective at work and add value to your HR function.

» Supporting good practice in managing employment relations

» Delivering learning and development activities
