How it Works

You may be wondering what it is like to study for your CIPD qualification with DPG. Below gives you each of the elements of our programme, which we feel give participants a unique learning experience

DPG community

We have our own online community which is unique to DPG . It is a peer sharing platform which allows you to engage with current learners and facilitators and is packed with industry leading, cutting-edge content from around the world. It is available 24/7 and also gives you access to all of the support networks you will need to succeed on your programme. The best bit is, once you have completed your programme you are a member for life.


All of our CIPD modules are delivered through a blend of pre and post workshop learning and two-day interactive workshops. Workshop days run from 9am to 5pm Mon-Fri. Highly interactive and engaging, they are delivered using accelerated learning techniques to maximise effectiveness. Aside from delivering your core workshop and assesments, your personal facilitator is available to support you throughout the programme.


The programme facilitators have been carefully selected based on their subject knowledge, practitioner experience and ability to inspire and develop others. All of our facilitators have first hand experience of HR or L&D Management and as such bring real world experience and insights to your programme
