Sam Boucher – L&D Manager at Nationwide

In Short

DPG’s engaging writing, interesting blogs, thought-provoking questions, individual activities and suggested videos were a perfect blend for me (not to mention the occasional workshop with an invested and supportive mentor). This programme has not only given me so much to consider and investigate, but the confidence to achieve it too.

Why did you choose DPG?

As a busy full time working mum of 2 young boys, I wanted to study with a company that could offer flexibility, balancing work, family, social life and my boys’ sporting activities, whilst completing my qualification. DPG’s friendly support network and engaging material really intrigued me. Every aspect was interesting, the ability to interact with other likeminded professionals via the DPG Community was fabulous and the responses back from DPG on comments you post was exciting. I can get bored reading eLearning script after eLearning script, I don’t learn that way. But DPG’s engaging writing, interesting blogs, thought-provoking questions, individual activities and suggested videos were a perfect blend for me (not to mention the occasional workshop with an invested and supportive mentor).

What were your goals of starting the programme?

I’m continually strengthening my skills and knowledge in L&D through CPD and building relationships with other CIPD professionals. Having led the L&D requirements for huge change programmes, I knew completing the CIPD Level 5 programme would strengthen these experiences with structure and direction.

How has the programme helped your career and where are you now?

I’m excited to put all my learning into practice. Organisational Development, whether as an employee or consultant is a direction I want to explore more. This programme has not only given me so much to consider and investigate, but the confidence to achieve it too.

What would you say to anyone thinking of starting a programme with DPG?

Do it – DPG is the best company I have worked with. When I complete the CIPD Level 7 programme, it will be with them!
