Manager's reference for a CIPD level 7 student

As a current member of the CIPD I knew that when Becki was successful in the appointment to HR Officer she would be an excellent candidate to follow the CIPD route towards qualification. Becki has a reputation as a hard worker both personally and in work and has demonstrated this in combining full time work and study. Whilst studying she has grown in her role, always willing to take on new challenges with enthusiasm and professionalism. Becki has learned how to research with reference to current legislation and other organisation practices, assisting her to develop new policies and procedures that are conducive to the business culture. Becki certainly has more confidence when advising managers and employees, and I honestly believe that her knowledge base gained by completing the CIPD course has added to her credibility with colleagues and within the business. I would definitely recommend the course to a candidate who has the interest and tenacity to succeed.


Manager's reference for CIPD level 5 student

Since undertaking the level 5 CIPD course, I have seen significant growth in Tracy’s overall competence as a HR professional. Tracy has had the opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge from the course in a number of work place situations which has developed her confidence and ability to think on her feet. This has increased her profile within our organisation and has seen Managers readily asking Tracy for her advice around people matters. Tracy has also really developed her analytical skills and has gained a solid understanding that you need to gather facts over feelings when it comes to gathering evidence of people issues and getting buy-in when proposing solutions. It has helped that Tracy thoroughly enjoys learning and has passion and enthusiasm for the HR profession and this exudes from her when she recounting what she’s been learning. Whilst Tracy is still relatively new to HR, she is continuing to develop into a well-rounded generalist, I have confidence in her ability to tackle people matters with integrity and sensitivity, underpinned by her learning from the course.

It was great that there were two enrolment dates, which meant I could start the course in January which suited me better than the September start date
