Chris works as an L&D Service Delivery Partner and has just successfully completed his CIPD Level 3 L&D programme.
I chose to use DPG as they were able to offer an in-house solution to a group of L&D employees at a competitive rate and have an excellent reputation for delivering quality programmes.
I wanted a depth of understanding of L&D as I had recently taken over responsibility for the design, delivery and planning of our L&D function. The programme had a great mix of workshops and self-lead learning, with plenty of opportunity to put my learning into practice over the course of the 9 months.View Course
I’ve got a much deeper level of understanding of how L&D impacts the organisation I work in and I’m able to practically apply the course material into my role. My ultimate career aspiration would be to become an L&D/HR director.
DPG are a great company to study with as they provide an excellent level of support through the facilitator and online tools. They understood our business and challenges and were able to integrate them into the workshops so that the scenarios were brought to life rather than theorised.
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
