  • Hi Phoebe

    I'll post a link here to a book that many believed was the core text for level 5 for a long time. Although, with the number of resources available on the internet, it's not essential to own this any longer - in my opinion.

    It's a big book and not cheap. You'll get a 20% discount with your CIPD membership, alternatively, there are plenty of previously owned copies for sale in the internet. 

    Here's the link: https://www.koganpage.com/product/human-resource-management-at-work...

    I'm one of the Online Facilitators for Level 5 HRM, so feel free to let me know if you have any questions about Level 5.

    Best wishes,

    Human Resource Management at Work
