Duration of course.. Slight panic (maybe)

CIPD L5 - Hi all,  help! I'm having a slight panic. Silly question but can anyone confirm the duration of the course? I believe it should be 2 years (as I didn't fast track) but the only documents I can find refer to 12 months but I'm not sure if that's just my payment terms and now I'm slightly paniced as I enrolled in July 2020. I have emailed online facilitator but it's playing on my mind so thought I'd ask you lovely lot too! Thanks in advance!

  • Hi Sarah

    The answer depends on what programme you are on.

    You've posted in the Career Advice Forum - which you are welcome to do of course! I'll just suggest though that if you want to chat with students on your programme there is more chance of them seeing it if you post in the Community group for your programme.


    • Hi Gary, thank you. I wrote it initially whilst on my phone so it only gave me limited choices. I did also email the online facilitator email address and received confirmation that it's two years :)

  • Hi Sarah.  Yes, when I joined in December 2019 it was for 2 years.  I hope it all goes well. Natalie.

    • Thank you! I started to think it was 12 months in line with the payment terms :')

      Hope yours went well / going well too!
