To gain the CIPD Level 7 Advanced Award in Employee Engagement, you must:
Qualify for the award through a short telephone diagnostic
The first step is to make sure you are going to have the necessary evidence for the competency-based assessments at the assessment centre. A short telephone diagnostic will help us to decide if you qualify for this route.
Attend the following workshops
- Induction Workshop
Once accepted and registered on the programme, your next step is to attend an induction workshop. This workshop outlines the competency-based model for the Award(s), including the assessment design and criteria. We will cover all aspects of the assessments and how we can support you with compiling and submitting your evidence for assessment.
- Two Working towards Assessment Workshops
During the 20-week programme you are required to attend two separate workshops, usually in weeks 3 and 10. The style and approach of the workshops is to share experiences and ways of working and may at times require some pre-workshop activity.
- pre-workshop activity
- assessment preparation activities, key reading and research
- telephone assessment session
- preparation activities and evidence which you will present to assessors at the assessment centre.
Your time in between and after workshops is taken up with various assessment preparation activities, as well as key reading and research with the support of your adviser. All of which prepares you for a telephone assessment session with your adviser in week 18. This session will focus on reviewing your preparation activities and the evidence you will present to the assessors at the assessment centre in week 20, giving you two weeks to take on board any adviser feedback.
Present to the assessors at the assessment centre
Week 20 is the assessment centre, which takes place over two consecutive days. You will go through each of the assessments with other candidates and receive your feedback report a week after the assessment centre, which will include the assessment decision.
