  • I studied with Acacia Learning (formerly Selhurst Consulting Ltd) in 2011 on the Advanced Diploma in HR Management. I chose them as they were recommended by the CIPD and are flexible in their approach. They offered exactly what I was looking for… weekend study. The tutors are well informed, helpful and entertaining. The blended learning materials provided a good selection of wider reading and advice and are well structured. The course has allowed me to gain post-grad level qualification which has given me the opportunity to live and work in the US. I have already recommended Acacia to a friend.
