What’s the difference between a course and an apprenticeship?
When you study a CIPD course with us you’ll work through different modules, attend live classes, and submit assessments, all entirely online. You can do this whether you’re a student, employed full or half-time, or not employed at all.
An apprenticeship combines learning with working. Within your role as an apprentice, 80% of your time will be spent on the day-to-day responsibilities of your job. The other 20% is used for “off-the-job” training.
In all our People Academy apprenticeships, this includes a CIPD course. But employer training, mentoring, keeping a reflective journal, and attending industry events all also count towards this 20%.
As an apprentice, you’ll be supported not only by your online tutor, but also face-to-face visits from your Learning and Development Coach.
