CIPD and CfA to offer Higher Apprenticeship in HR management

pp_default1

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and CfA are to jointly develop a national Higher Apprenticeship in HR Management, after being awarded nearly £800,000 in financing by the Government.

The money will come from the £18.7 million Higher Apprenticeship pot, which was announced by Business Secretary Vince Cable in December last year. The Higher Apprenticeship in HR Management is intended to provide a new career progression route for anyone wishing to pursue a career in HR or more general business. The aim is to create 725 places by 2016.
 
Stephanie Bird, the CIPD’s director of HR capability, said that the Higher Apprenticeships was targeted at people of all ages and from all walks of life.
 
"HR is a rewarding career of choice in itself and can also provide a route into other business disciplines. Gone are the days when HR was a predominantly administrative profession: today’s brightest HR professionals display a huge amount of business savvy and are real agents of change who contribute significantly to sustainable organisational growth," she added.
