Charlotte is a HR Business Partner at the Zoological Society of London and has been studying the CIPD Level 7 Diploma in HR Management for nearly a year.
I have been wanting to do it for several years but didn’t have the money or support to do so. I decided to study the CIPD Advanced Level programme to increase my knowledge in HR theories & practice. Also, to become a Chartered CIPD HR professional to increase my credibility. My employer provided me with the funding and support.
I chose DPG because I wanted to complete this course flexibly and fit studying into my schedule rather than fitting my schedule around studying. I often need to work late and was concerned that if I had to go to University once or twice a week, then I would have a high absence rate and miss important information.View Course
I enjoy the support which DPG gives i.e. the regular workshops, the workbooks and the network. I am already using the knowledge gained, it has opened my eyes to other organisations and allowed me to understand the importance of research.
If you worry about the idea of going to university once/twice a week and have a busy life then using DPG is for you. You can fit the study around the schedule, you get lots of different learning materials and support, and you get to build a network of contacts.
I did quite a lot of research about L&D qualifications suited to my role and CIPD seemed to offer the best options.
I looked at several providers but had really good feedback on DPG from some of my colleagues who had done their qualifications with DPG recently, and it was definitely the right decision for me
