Capability assessment

Capability assessment

Benchmark your teams against credible, independent standards for excellence in HR and L&D

The CIPD provides an end to end assessment service which can benchmark your team against international HR and L&D standards. Our most popular assessment is our HR Diagnostic Tool (HRDT), an online 360 assessment which assesses HR and L&D practitioners against the knowledge, experience and behaviours required of 'gold standard' professionals. Our approach is highly developmental, and each individual receives a feedback report and one-to-one feedback session. We can also provide team reports to show you the aggregated results for your HR teams which can inform the development of your HR function as a whole, and work with you to identify how you can build that capability in the most effective way.

Our approach is not an 'off-the-shelf' 360 assessment, but a full consultancy approach: we'll work with you from start to finish, mapping your roles to industry standards, carrying out the assessment, providing support and advice to engage your teams in the approach, and helping you consider how best to build the capability of your team from this point on.



Gain independent CIPD recognition for your HR and L&D development programmes

The CIPD's endorsement service provides an external, independent seal of approval; it signifies that your work has been designed and delivered according to good practice, and that the content has been benchmarked and approved against the CIPD's international professional standards. We can endorse in-house learning programmes which are focused on developing HR or L&D capability, from short courses to longer, more complex blended learning programmes.

Endorsement provides you with:

  • independent, external endorsement of your development programmes
  • benchmarking against the global standards in the CIPD Profession Map
  • use of the CIPD endorsement logo as a quality mark to promote your course and recognise achievement of learners
  • recognition as an employer of choice – showing commitment to developing your workforce.


Boost your HR function's potential with CIPD qualifications

CIPD courses and qualifications are recognised worldwide as demonstrating a commitment to the highest standards of professionalism in Human Resources (HR) and Learning and Development.

CIPD qualifications are available at Level 3 Foundation, Level 5 Intermediate and Level 7 Advanced, and you can study awards, Certificates and Diplomas at each of these levels. Most CIPD qualifications provide a pathway to becoming a CIPD professional member, at Associate (Assoc CIPD) level. The Advanced Level Diploma, PDS (or university equivalent) provides the underpinning knowledge to apply to become recognised as a Chartered Member or Chartered Fellow.

CIPD qualifications are derived from our Profession Map which sets out how HR adds the greatest sustained value to the organisation it operates in, now and in the future. It describes the highest standards of professional competence to deliver sustained performance for the organisation.

Group Experience Assessment

Professionalise your HR and L&D function with the CIPD

Experience Assessment is designed for established HR and L&D professionals at all levels. It benchmarks the performance of HR and L&D practitioners against the CIPD Profession Map and recognises their achievements with CIPD professional membership.

Unlike other approaches, individuals are required to demonstrate their effectiveness as HR or L&D practitioners by showcasing the impact they've had on their organisation. They'll be asked to explain not only what they do, but how they do it.

Group Experience Assessment is easily incorporated into your HR capability strategies. Many of our clients include it within their tailored development programmes. Upon completion your organisation will receive an Organisational Insights Report, which includes:

  • benchmarking data against the CIPD Profession Map
  • key trends
  • strengths and areas for development within the team
  • options to help further your team's HR capability.
