This apprenticeship qualification is aimed at HR professionals who are responsible for delivering front line HR support to managers and employees. Their work is likely to include handling day-to-day queries and providing HR advice; working on a range of HR processes; from recruitment through to retirement; using HR systems to maintain employee records; providing relevant HR information to the business to support the business with HR projects/changes.

The apprenticeship will provide successful learners with a firm foundation in all aspects of Human Resource Practice, developing your knowledge and understanding of the management of Human Resources, and the skills required to carry out this role confidently and effectively


At least 20% of your working week for the duration of the apprenticeship must be spent carrying out new learning relating to the apprenticeship standards. To support you in achieving this, you will study the CIPD Level 3 Certificate in Human Resource Practice covering the following topics:

• Developing Yourself as an Effective Human Resources or Learning and Development Practitioner

• Understanding Organisations and the Role of Human Resources

• Recording, Analysing and Using Human Resources Information

• Resourcing Talent

• Supporting Good Practice in Managing Employment Relations

• Delivering Learning and Development Activities

You will also be required to develop an extensive knowledge of your organisations HR policies and procedures, including employment legislation surrounding these.

How will it be delivered?

The class-based element of the apprenticeship is continuously assessed with no end examination. Successful completion of all assignments and class-based work will result in the award of the CIPD Level 3 Certificate in Human Resource Practice.

In addition to this, your apprenticeship assessor will also carry out regular 1-2-1 assessments such as observations, Q&A’s and professional discussions in your workplace at mutually convenient times. These assessments will provide evidence of you demonstrating the knowledge, skills and behaviours using practical working examples required to meet the Level 3 HR Support apprenticeship standards.

To achieve the apprenticeship in full, your End Point Assessment is made up of two components; a 3,000-word consultative project and a professional discussion, both of which demonstrate you meeting the apprenticeship standards within your role. Your End Point Assessment is assessed by the CIPD.

Entry requirements

It is expected that level 3 apprentices will have experience of working within a current HR role, to ensure they have the suitable foundations on which to further build their knowledge and skills.

Certificate evidence of English and maths at level 2 or GCSE grade A*-C (or new grade 9-4). If you do not have these, we can support the development of your English and maths skills through completion of Functional Skills in the relevant subject and one-to-one support. Most employers look for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C (or new grade 9-4). This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study.
