CIPD Level 5 Diploma in HR

Hi All,

I can't believe I'm writing this as I feel a little embarresed but I joined DPG back in 2019 to start my course and as of yet I have completed the e-learning for DVP, prepped for the assessment but I can't bring myself to start the actual assignment. 

I feel like I need to just restart again as it has been so long, lots of drastic changes have happened in my life since november 2019 and I think I could really do with a support network with people in the same boat to finally start and fingers crossed complete this course. 

I've just started a new job and have a 6 month old to work around but I'm really determined to make it work this time. 

Also, I've been out of education a few years and I think I'm just a bit worried about actually writing the assessments. 

If anyone has recently started or has struggled to get past the first hurdle and wants to form a bit of a support/study group then please let me know. 

Thanks everyone,

  • Hi Hannah,

    Im in the same boat as you, I had joined in late 2019 and have struggled to work on the course and have asked for an extension to complete the course. Just waiting for them to confirm the extension and access to my account then I can get started.
