The HR Forum

Good morning!


Not 100% if this is the right forum for this-however.....

As I commence Assignment 1 (DVP), I am devoid of any actual reading lists that may contribute to, not just this assignment, but the whole Level 5 diploma qualification. Any 'steers' would be greatly appreciated. I am in the trows of amazonning the below!

Thus far I have discovered:

Managing People & Organisations by Taylor & Woodhams,

Studying HR Management by T&W again, and

 HR Management at Work by Marchington & Wilkinson.

Will let you know if they're of any help!!

Many thanks,

  • Hi Heather,

    The on-line lessons are very useful and the assessment guidance, very comprehensive. As I unearth resources that can contribute as references for the assessment activity, I will post and let you know.




  • Morning I am just starting level 5 and feel slightly overwhelmed with what to do first.  I have attended a couple of webinars but just don't know where to start on my first assignment.  Its a while since I worked in HR and whilst I have the experience its knowing what to use for the best is what I am struggling with.

    Any help guidance would be greatly appreciated.


    Good luck with your journey!




    • Hi Heather, I have almost completed my first assignment on level 5. I really struggled on where to start and it has taken me a very long time to do this too... .   I am hoping to get assignment 1 out of the way so I can at least get a benchmark for the level of details I need to include - it has been a very long time since I have done any learnign or writing, so I totally udnerstand where you are coming from. Which webinars did you join? Are they the ones on Monday at 8pm?
