If you’re just starting out in your L&D career or have one to two years’ experience as an L&D Administrator or Officer, then this programme is right for you.
The aim of the programme is to provide you with a thorough grounding on the basics of L&D and an understanding of L&D principals.
With this programme you can choose to use your current or past employer as the basis for your study or if you’re completely new to L&D you can choose our unique immersive case study environment (DPG are the only CIPD Centre that offers this), so you get to practice risk free in a virtual online company.
There are no entry requirements for this programme and it’s suitable for you if you’ve not been in a learning environment for a while, because you get all the support you need along the way to guarantee you’re successful.
The programme covers all the typical aspects of an L&D practitioner role, each of which is a specific CIPD unit. These include:
Once you’ve passed all your CIPD units and received your certificate, you are able to use the letters Assoc CIPD after your name, giving you professional recognition from the CIPD, which is valued by employers globally.
If you want to further your knowledge of L&D or are looking to progress your career and improve your earning potential, your next step is to progress to the the CIPD Level 5 L&D Certificate/Diploma qualification. The Level 5 programme can be started immediately after you’ve finished your Level 3 programme and explores L&D at a deeper level, so you are ready to work at an L&D Manager, L&D Business Partner or senior L&D Specialist level.
You also get a £250 loyalty discount when you study another programme with us.

This programme has helped my career a lot as I had little knowledge about the L&D industry and no professional qualification to do my job. Now that I have completed this course, I am not only qualified to do my job, but also very knowledgeable.
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.
I enjoyed the blended learning approach and the atmosphere created by our facilitator. Our group was very close and the course allowed us to develop a network of contacts that supported one another through the learning. The online modules are really easy to use and submit.
I will be able to take what I have learned back into the classroom as a trainer, but also as part of looking at the wider needs of the organisation for all staff training; and how my role fits in with this. I would recommend this course to others as a great stepping stone into the world of L&D.
I’m so happy I chose DPG because of the excellent support I’ve received throughout my studies. I can move forward in my L&D career with the conviction that I am doing things the right way, as long as I apply all that I have learnt.
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.
This programme has helped me become much more efficient and set a direction for my career. I have no doubt that when the time comes to progress, I’ll have a huge advantage.
