CHaRM offers a high level of tutor input and the networking to develop learning relationships with other professionals. At a recent standards assessment by the CIPD, the feedback received was that we have a high level of resources and support to offer students, both in terms of tutor support and practical resources, better in fact than many academic institutions. We were also praised for our commitment to recognising the Certificate in Learning and Development as a distinct and important qualification for professionals in that field.

Details of each Certificate are available below via the hyperlinks.

The foundation qualification is for those who are aspiring to, or embarking on, a career in HR or Learning & Development. It is also valuable for line managers, consultants and independent trainers who want to gain a recognised qualification. Whatever your background or experience, support will be provided through individual tutorial sessions to enable you to successfully complete the programme.
