I was wondering if anybody could give me a bit of advice? I have been working in HR for the past 2 years. I completed my Level 3 Diploma in HR Practice back in June, with the aim of starting the Level 5 Diploma in September. However the college that I had completed the level 3 with are no longer running CIPD courses. I visited another college a few weeks ago to see if it would be suitable for me to complete level 5 there, however the tutor actually recommended I skip the level 5 & go straight for the level 7. I am 21 & completed A-Levels at 6th form college, therefore he felt I could handle working at the higher level. However I am not too sure if I am ready to work at this level.
I'm now really confused what I should be doing! This level 5 course starts in a few weeks, therefore I feel I am running out of time to make a decision. Due to the time of year, I am also worried that I have missed the start of all the level 7 courses. Plus I would struggle to afford the level 7 courses at the stage.
As I mentioned, I am young therefore do want to do "something" in terms of a qualification. So do I leave it a year, maybe look into payroll courses & enhance my experience through work based learning?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
