CIPS qualificationsCIPS offers a range of academic qualifications ranging from the Certificate (equivalent to GCSE (UK) AQF certificate III (AUS)) through to the Professional Diploma (equivalent to the final year of a degree).

For maximum relevance to your organisation, each qualifications programme, delivered by our expert tutors, contextualises the syllabus to the environment in which your company operates.

All CIPS Qualifications Programmes benefit from a dedicated programme manager to support every aspect of delivery.  Programmes are then tailored to maximise learning, optimise pass rates and drive value from available budget. 

  • Maximising learning
    We design programmes with a customised balance of face-to-face and virtual study support to suit the needs of your business and your staff.  This blended approach can include e-learning, phone tutoring, workshops, webinars and course books, all helping to stimulate learning and minimise time away from the business.
  • Supporting students
    Our professional programme coordinators enable students to focus more time on their studies by simplifying each step of the learning journey, managing the headache of ordering books, applying for membership and registering for exams on their behalf.
  • Optimising spend
    This flexible, personalised approach enables you to gain staff with independently accredited, globally recognised qualifications whilst optimising the value of your training spend.
