The new Diploma in HR Practice provides a firm foundation in all the areas of HR, as well as an understanding of HR in a business context. It will help you to develop practical, essential HR skills and, above all, it will give you the confidence to be more effective at work and add value to your HR function. It will provide candidates with the following knowledge: • A sound understanding of the knowledge, skills and behaviour required of a professional HR practitioner, whether their role is generalist or specialist in nature – for example, resourcing. • An understanding of how HR activities support an organisation’s strategy and assist the achievement of business objectives, and how these are shaped by internal and external factors. • The ability to analyse HR information and present findings to inform decision-making. • Completion of the DHRP provides the knowledge required for assessment for the new associate professional level of CIPD membership. If you are able to demonstrate your certificate knowledge in the workplace through membership assessment (assessing workplace activities and behaviours), you will be awarded the new associate professional level of membership with designatory letters.
