I have a good friend who completed her cipd qualification in 2004. She studies core management at college and then her electives through BPP Malpas. She is looking for a career change into teaching but is struggling to find out how many CAT points her cipd qualification gives her. She has tried calling CIPD but unfortunately they couldn't help. I wondered if anyone could suggest who to contact about this? 

Many thanks in advance.

    The College she did core management at should be able to give her details of that and malpas for their qualification.

    I fear it may not be as many as she thinks

    Hi Laura

     I'm not clear whether your friend is seeking exemptions from components of eg a PGCE based on CIPD qualification or just seeking to use it to satisfy the entry requirements for the PGCE.

    If it's the former, I can't think there's much if any equivalence between the two. But if it's the latter then as far as I know CAT is not too relevant - it's up to the institution running the course to decide, but as regards equivalence of qualifications, sure they'll be guided by the National Qualifications Framework.
