I graduated from university in 2009 with a Ba (Hons) Human Resource Management degree which was accredited by the CIPD. I became a Graduate member of the CIPD and this has now changed to Associate member. Over recent months I have been seeking employment and the job specifications have asked for CIPD level 5 and above. I've discussed with recruitment agents and interview panel members but neither been 100% sure whether my qualification is a level 5 or in fact higher. My question is how can I find out what level my degree equates to? I've never been asked this prior to this year so I'm not sure if it is more of a recent development or something that used to be asked that employers still like to ask. Either way I'd like to know so if I'm asked again I can be confident with my answer.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated
Thank you in advance
