About the CIPD

The CIPD is the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, and it is the UK awarding body for HR qualifications. Over 13,000 students worldwide join CIPD programmes each year to:

  • Enhance their knowledge on the latest theory, case studies and insights into best practice HR
  • Significantly increase their earning potential 
  • Boost their career opportunities as CIPD's qualifications are valued by employers. 

You can be sure a CIPD qualification will equip you with the knowledge and skills that employers are looking for. An HR diploma or certificate brings continuing professional development (CPD), and helps to advance your HR career. 

About our CIPD Qualifications

Oakwood's CIPD qualifications are available at award, certificate and diploma level, from Foundation level (Level 3), Intermediate level (Level 5) and Advanced level (Level 7). We normally offer a range of HR training courses throughout the year, and in a range of locations across the Middle East and Europe, including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar and Egypt.
