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,

    I am also in the same position. I started in November 2020 got through the e-learning modules, and then homeschooling started in January and everything went out the window. I'm just starting again now but feel a little lost and have no confidence that what I'm doing is right. Would love to be involved in any group, I need some motivation to keep going!
