How is it delivered?

We are a CIPD specialist and very experienced in delivering high quality flexible learning, you only attend one workshop per month at one of our high quality venues across the UK.  In between workshop events you work through our highly rated CIPD flexible learning materials at a time that suits you best. You have access to the DPG Community, our dedicated online platform to support your studies 24/7. The community connects you with other learners who are on the same Learning Journey. Your facilitator is also on hand outside of the workshops to offer support when you need it via email, phone and via the DPG community. We're committed to your success and your experience is our highest priority.

Is it open to everyone?

Absolutely - there are no set entry requirements. The programme is however aimed at aspiring or existing HR Managers. Pitched at undergraduate level the programme requires you to demonstrate higher level study skills e.g. analytical thinking, writing in a concise and focussed way, research skills etc. If like many of our other participants you have not studied for a long time rest assured we will support you every step of the way.
