The CIPD Level 7 programme has supported me in my development and has enabled me to progress in my role. My confidence has improved greatly in my role and not only that, I really enjoy my job.
DPG offered a number of things in terms of my learning preference, an opportunity for it to fit around my work and an online community that could answer any questions I had. I really enjoyed having a mixture of online learning and workshops and loved having a group of fellow students to work with. DPG were great with answering any questions I had before the course started and my DPG facilitator was fantastic!View Course
It is incredibly exciting to be shortlisted. It has felt like a great opportunity to stop and reflect upon my work and the achievements I have had since completing my CIPD. For my work to recognised beyond my own organsation, by the wider industry and the institute itself is amazing. It has been a great opportunity to share the success of the training programme I have led and managed within the construction industry and really demonstrate the benefits.
I can’t wait for the awards night. It will be really good to celebrate all my hard work with some of my colleagues. I’m also excited to find out about what the rest of the industry is doing and seeing real achievements. I’m feeling nervous but know that being shortlisted is a huge success in itself.
Winning would be incredible. It’s not something I have tried to think too much about as I recognise that there is some tough competition in all the categories. The application process is certainly challenging and it would be extremely rewarding to win. Since completing my qualification, it would be a huge success in terms of establishing myself confidently within my Learning and Development role.
When starting the course, I really wanted to establish myself as a professional in Learning and Development and have the knowledge and skills to do so. I wanted to be able to confidently deliver training and really feel like I was benefitting my organisation.
The programme supported me in my development and has enabled me to progress to the role of Talent Manager. I now lead in the design and delivery of our leadership training programmes, thanks to my understanding of learning and development and its role in the business. My confidence has improved greatly in my role and not only that, I really enjoy my job.
The course certainly challenged me but was hugely rewarding and has significantly supported me in my career. I would recommend the course to anyone thinking of a career in Learning and Development.
I came across DPG and it was the flexibility in their delivery of the programme that struck me. I work full time and have fantastic support from them, so am able to balance study requirements alongside my day to day role.
DPG is a fantastic organisation and has some fantastic people working there and I believe that DPG helped me change my future.
Within 3 months of completing my CIPD qualification with DPG, I had secured a temporary position which turned into permanent employment as a HR Generalist. Since then I have gained a promotion.
There is a really inclusive ethos built into everything about it – and being able to stay as part of the DPG family even after completing the programme is such a valuable part of that.
The learning was at the right pace, the workshops were engaging and interactive. I could manage my study in hours to suit me around my work and personal life.
I’m so happy I chose DPG because of the excellent support I’ve received throughout my studies. The DPG online community continues to be an excellent resource where you can mingle with like-minded professionals in a supportive and friendly environment.
DPG are well-organised, professional and understand the needs of their participants. It definitely feels like a partnership when you are training with them.
I have been able to implement a lot of ideas directly into my current role, improving the training portfolio and materials with the skills I have learned. The ROI is through the roof which has already been recognised in my appraisal.
I chose to use DPG as they were able to offer an in-house solution at a competitive rate and have an excellent reputation for delivering quality programmes.
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 really liked the fact that DPG offered such flexibility, both in terms of the time taken to complete the qualification, and that I could be flexible about workshop locations.
DPG provides a fantastic environment to learn, the facilities are great, the facilitators are knowledgeable and the online modules are easy to submit. Plus, feedback is both informative and swift.
DPG are supportive, relaxed and disciplined. You create your own learning environment through the DPG framework and everyone has the opportunity to excel providing you’re willing to put in 100%. DPG are always willing to help and you will meet good people along the way.
Without a doubt, I would gladly recommend DPG to others. It is rare to see such a learning organisation that treats the learning needs of its participants not just as a collective unit but on an individual basis.
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
Everyone I have met at DPG has been genuinely interested in seeing me grow and develop. It also doesn’t just stop when you finish the qualification. They will offer you some really practical advice that will help you to choose what is best for you and your development.
Compared to other courses I have done online, DPG supersedes the others by far. Not only do I have really good support from the online facilitator, the course is also really fun to follow and I can correlate it with my real life scenarios.
So far the support has been amazing. There is always someone there to support you and make you feel at ease – I would recommend doing the course with DPG.
My advice to anyone looking to study with DPG is do it! The tutors and facilitators are very supportive and will help you in any way they can to succeed.
The CIPD Level 3 Certificate in L&D has been useful in thinking about L&D from a perspective I hadn’t looked at before, and has really helped my understanding grow and helped develop me as an L&D practitioner. It has definitely helped me bring new ideas to the table at work and I’m sure the knowledge I have gained will continue to help me.
It was a really easy decision to make in choosing DPG. They offered a practical and applicable course whilst also allowing me the ability to fit studying in with a busy full time work schedule.
