Nebel Crowhurst – Head of Talent Development at River Island

In Short

The connections I built while studying have continued to develop over the past few years with regular networking get togethers. Achieving my CIPD Level 5 and Level 7 in HR Development through DPG has no doubt elevated my career by giving me the breadth of knowledge I needed to take on bigger and more challenging roles.

How do you think studying the CIPD Levels 5 and 7 qualifications with DPG have helped you develop and how have they contributed to your career success?

For me, learning alongside working was the best way to feel that I could apply my learning immediately in the work that I do as well as seeing an impact. I am a massive advocate of apprenticeships and workplace learning, not least because I knew in my teens that university and formal education wasn’t for me, so being able to get to a point in my career in which I felt I knew I was on the right path and then being able to underpin my commercial experience with a formal qualification was a win-win.

The blend of DPG’s expert tutors in both the workshop environment, as well as on-line, complemented by an intuitive and informative learning portal gave me the support and flexibility I needed to allow me to study alongside progressing my career and leading a busy L&D team. An additional benefit is the amazing network I have built though studying alongside other passionate and like-minded people.

What would you say to anyone who is thinking about studying a CIPD qualification with DPG?

Don’t let anything get in your way, it’s all too easy to say… “I am too busy” … “I can’t fit it in” … “I’m not very academic” if you want to do it, go for it! Of course there are points in which it is hard work, but if you are someone that feels passionately about having a successful career in L&D the hard work will absolutely be worth it.
