FAQs

  • What are the fees for CIPD membership?

    If you are studying for the CIPD qualification, you are required to join as a Student member at the start of your qualification. To join, you will need to pay a subscription fee of approximately GBP 130. To maintain your membership, you will need to pay membership fees to CIPD annually.

  • How do I become a CIPD Member?

    In order to receive your CIPD Certificate, you will need to enroll as a Student Member with CIPD prior to enrolling for the training programme. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have paid your membership fees and registered as a student with CIPD. Upon successful completion of the programme, you will be eligible to apply for Associate Membership and use the designation Associate CIPD next to your name. You can progress to Chartered or Fellow membership based on your experience.

  • What support will I receive?

    As a student at PwC’s Academy, you will receive support and guidance throughout your qualification. Some examples of the support mechanisms we have in place are:

    • Half Hour Club: Trainers are available to answer questions or clear doubts on any topics you wish to discuss 30 minutes before/after class.
    • Support Courses: We regularly run support courses on various topics to help you develop essential study skills

    Our trainers are also readily available to provide any additional support you may need outside the classroom.

  • How am I graded?

    There are no exams in CIPD. You will be assessed on an on-going basis on completion of:

    • Written assignments such as reports, essays, and case studies
    • Personal development
    • Interviews, performance reviews and other skill based assessments.

    For every assessment, you will either receive a Pass or Refer. If you receive a Refer on your first submission, you will have an opportunity to submit again. If you receive a Refer on your second submission as well, you will be required to redo the module. You must pass all modules in order to successfully complete the qualification.

  • How long will the course take?

    Typically you can complete the training for the certificate programme in 6-12 months and the diploma in 6-15 months. There are several programme formats to suit your schedule. It will take approximately 3 months after you submit your final assessment to receive your certificate from CIPD.

  • Are there any exemptions?

    You may be eligible for exemptions, credit transfers or recognition of prior learning if you have studied similar modules previously. Contact us with evidence of your certificate of achievement and we will discuss eligibility on a case-by-case basis.

  • Which qualification and level is best suited for me?

    In order to determine the most suitable level for you, we will conduct a short initial diagnostic assessment (on the phone or face to face) and then recommend the level that would be best suited to your education, experience and goals.

  • What are the eligibility criteria for CIPD?

    There are no formal educational prerequisites. If your educational background is not in English, you must demonstrate a high standard of verbal and written English to be admitted to a CIPD Programme. You may be required to complete a pre-assessment to demonstrate your English language competence.
