Here at Acacia we have developed a unique delivery and assessment model for students who already work in human resources or learning and development roles.

If you are lacking experience in a specific area, you can opt for a ‘mix and match’ (some modules in workshops and some via the competency route) approach, allowing you to attend workshop sessions to build up those theoretical gaps whilst completing the other modules via the competency-based route.
Experience of ‘at least’ 2 years is essential. All units are available via competence assessment if the learner is eligible to do so, it is usual at Foundation Level for learners to complete via a mixed combination of both taught workshops and competence assessment.
