SCQF Level 11
Travel & Tourism, International & Commercial

Course Overview

Whatever stage you’re at in your career, a CIPD qualification connects you with your peers and gives you the strategies you need to increase your knowledge and skills to boost your career and make an impact. On successful completion of any CIPD qualification, you’ll become a member of the CIPD.

CIPD qualifications are recognised by employers as a global standard of excellence. Your qualification also gives you CIPD membership, connecting you to a deeply informed and influential network of people professionals worldwide – and a path to life-long learning.

Are you ready to develop your personal effectiveness and business acumen? Based on the latest business research in people practice, this qualification will help you learn how to manage employment relations, recruit and nurture talent to sustain success – and reward and motivate the superstars in your workforce. You’ll learn how to design and manage your own strategy, enhance people management skills – and learn how best to lead.  On successful completion, you’ll get an Associate Membership of the CIPD.

(New CIPD qualifications are being introduced in 2021. Based on the new Profession Map, the qualifications focus on the knowledge and behaviours required to create value and make an impact in the changing world of work. The new qualifications set the standard for people professionals. We are planning to offer these from September 2021 (pending CIPD approval). At this stage, we are taking expressions of interest. More information will be available once approval is confirmed.)
