Human Resources Management Level 4


Mark Davies

For my first time studying out of college this was an eye opener. I completed it in my own time whilst working at my full-time job, the tutor was really good at replying to my assignments which helped massively when completing them at a quicker rate. Thanks Association of Learning for everything.


Hayley Jones

What a fantastic set of tutors that I got when completing my courses with this company. They always marked my work within 48 hours and gave me really positive feedback and suggestions on how to better myself; I really appreciated this as I wanted to get the most out of it and I did by completing the course within 6 months thanks to my tutor.


Fallon Hughes

Gained so much experience from this course, absolutely loved minute of studying and working hard towards the end goal! Will be back for more in the future when I decide which path I would like to take next.


Taz Fouler

This course has been amazing to study over the past few months, and I successfully passed it within a few months all due to the help of my amazing tutor. So glad I chose to go with this learning company over any others because I truly feel that I have gained so much knowledge from this course and have received so much help too.


Fred Whibley

This was my first time using this type of service. I found the online course very easy to follow and was clearly set out. Emails were answered quite quickly from my tutor, usually within a couple of days. It was overall a pleasant way to study. I would recommend this company to others and hopefully in the future use them again.



Just had my final unit of the course assessed and I am so happy just waiting for the qualification certificate now. I would recommend this home learning company to everyone. I started the course in August 2017 and I have loved every minute of completing it. The units are well written and easy to understand and the tutors have given me some great valuable feedback which I took into account. I cant thank the staff enough for all their help, it has been an accomplishment to complete this course and I am so proud of myself for doing all the hard work.


Paul Hill

I wanted to do a HR course and had never studied online before so I felt a bit apprehensive. Finding a trusted company was my main priority, Association of Learning had fantastic reviews and the course itself was of the best quality that I could find. Like anything it’s a risk handing over your money to a company you don’t know anything about but after reading many reviews I decided to book the course. Immediately I received an email welcoming me, within a week I received my coursework folder, then I received a call to see how I was progressing. Great communication!! You are given a year to complete the course and even though I have a family and a part time job I completed within 7 months. I would highly recommend this course and the company.


Kailan Williams

My work was marked really quickly and I could contact my tutor at anytime. This was a great way for me to study as i was able to fit the work in around my job and family. This course has been really interesting and easy to follow as questions were set along side the reading material.
Would definitely recommend this type of study and the company to anyone thinking of doing an online course.


Daniel Ingram

I would highly recommend this course, it didn’t take to long for me to complete and communication was spot on, whenever I needed help the tutor was always on hand to provide an answer to my question. Feedback time far exceeded my expectations and is what enabled me to complete my course in such a timely manner.


Gabrielle Taylor

I found this course incredibly well structured and my tutor was extremely helpful whenever I needed guidance. I would definitely recommend this course to others and I can’t wait to start using the knowledge gained on this course very soon within my job.


Heather Mayfair

This course has really helped me progress with my career and I had a lot of help from my tutor and without her I doubt I would have gotten through this course so thank you for your support and time with this course. I would recommend this course and company to anyone considering a distance learning course.


Mark Dickson

I loved this course!!! My tutor was easily contactable, the staff are very friendly on the phone and email when needed. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family!!
I can finally use my skills learnt to begin my bright career as a counselor!


Ebony Kenworthy

I have been very pleased with the way this course turned out. The work was marked quickly. The constructive helpful feedback from my tutor encouraged me to keep going.
I did do further research for the course, however, the material provided was more than enough for the course to be completed. It was laid out in an easy to read and understand way. I am currently doing another course in business management and intend to use Association of Learning for further courses when I complete my studies.


Charlie Hynes

I was extremely skeptical at first about doing any sort of distance/online learning , however after my experience with association of learning I genuinely feel confident now to do it again. My questions were answered almost instantaneously, the tutor marked the work on time so I can’t complain. They do also offer regulated qualifications which is why I chose them. Honestly be assured these guys do deliver and I am so pleased I decided to go with them. I have just completed my course and am now awaiting my certificate and can’t thank Association of Learning enough for their continued support.


Eileen Jackson

From the beginning I have found all course content very helpful and I found all members of staff that I have come across to be very helpful. I have done other courses online and none have been as helpful or as well written as this course. Highly recommended.


Keely Fairhurst

I really enjoyed this course, feedback and course support has been brilliant. One lady went far beyond her call off duty and I have to give her a great big thank you for all her support.

I am going to look at another course with them in the coming year.
Anyone looking to do distance learning courses I would recommend this company as their content is great and easy to understand, they provide exactly what is expected from distance learning.

Thank you Association of Learning for a great learning experience.


Edward Klose

Superb communication, staff & tutors always ready to help, great material and all work marked by, if not before, deadlines. I will definitely be returning to do more.


Rhys Sheldon

I have never been very good in a class room, exam style situation, but this way I was able to fit the course around my life style. My Tutor was always ready to respond to any questions that I had and I am looking forward to doing more courses in the future.


Tommy Allsop

A excellent course, enjoyed all the way through and learnt so much on the way would recommend this to everyone with any sort of interest in the HR sector. This has also made me think of doing another similar course in the near future.
Thank you all at Association Of Learning.



Enabling me to understand my position better has been very helpful, I had been given the role but had little idea of what I was doing. Strong support and course material exceeded expectations.


Kerry Smith

This course was great! All work books were full of useful information, activities and assignments were well and clearly explained so you knew what was the expected outcome. The certificate arrived promptly once the course was completed. Would definitely reccommend using Association of Learning to do a home learning course, even considering doing another one with them myself.


Shannon Thomas

I completed this course well within the allotted time allowed, i found this course intense and very well structured, having completed the course i feel i have learned what i needed to. It has now given me a taste for more information which is always going to be beneficial and will be of a great help in getting onto the HR ladder. Would recommend 100%.
