Actikem’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Programme pays off with CIPD Level 5 Diploma in Human Resource Management

Huge congratulations go to Becky Brown who recently completed her Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) Level 5 Diploma in Human Resource Management. Well done Becky!

In line with their commitment to their employees’ lifelong learning and CPD, Actikem invested in ​Becky’s course at Warrington and Vale Royal College in September 2018 to complement her HR responsibilities within the Company and extend her knowledge and skills of Human Resource Management. In September 2019 Becky gained her Level 3 Certificate in Human Resources Practice, progressing to study Level 5 shortly afterwards. Gaining these qualifications has enabled Becky to become an Associate member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, which means that she is able to use the following letters after her name 'Assoc CIPD'.

What areas did the Course cover?

Becky studied a range of modules, including:

  • Business Issues and the Contexts of Human Resources
  • Resourcing and Talent Planning
  • Using information in HR
  • Improving Organisational Performance and culture in practice
  • Specialist Employment Law
  • Developing Professional Practice
  • Reward for Performance and Contribution
  • Professional Behaviours and Valuing People
  • Employment Relationship Management

How was Becky Assessed?

The CIPD Level 5 Diploma in People Management is a 37-week programme of part-time study available on campus or on a distance-learning basis.

Becky was assessed through a variety of methods, including written reports, practical assignments, presenting, completing company surveys, professional discussions and keeping a CPD record.

How has Becky applied her learning to the business?

The expertise, knowledge and support that Becky has given to the Management and Staff at Actikem has been invaluable. She has assisted with staff recruitment (managing the process and interviewing candidates), has updated all staff Job Descriptions, and a number of good practice initiatives have now been rolled out throughout the business, thanks to Becky’s advice and knowledge-sharing.

Congratulations from us all Becky on your hard work and commitment in gaining this qualification!
