You are based in the GCC and already working in Human Resources or Learning and Development, or you’re looking to get into your first HR or L&D position. You know an HR qualification will help your career and you’ve chosen the UK’s Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development over the Society for Human Resource Management from the USA.

So why choose Oakwood for your CIPD qualification?

It is all about your experience – in the training room and in communication with Oakwood between modules.  When you attend Oakwood modules, you will work with Oakwood Associate Directors and facilitators who have in-depth experience of HR and L&D in the UK and the GCC.  

For the five days of each module, you are their top priority and their job is to ensure you understand and practice every skill essential to the HR and L&D role.  When they assess you during practical assignments, they give you detailed feedback about your performance and your developmental needs.  They understand the unique culture of the GCC and will treat you with respect and integrity. 

In between modules, when you are working on your written assignments, you will be in regular contact with the efficient and hardworking Oakwood Student Support Team in the UK.  They assess your assignments and give you all the detailed written feedback you need to pass.  Oakwood has invested in a well-run system to support students, but we never forget that you are people, because we’re people too!
