Frequently asked questions

Is this programme right for you?

If you have L&D management experience and are comfortable studying at postgraduate level, this is the programme for you. If you have studied at degree level or higher in a business related area but do not have L&D management experience, this programme could still be right for you. In this scenario we would strongly recommend you gain access to a mentor during your studies, or consider taking our CIPD Level 5 Certificate/Diploma in L&D programme first.

With this programme you can choose to use your current or past employer as the basis for your study or 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.

Your Learning Options

Blended (Workshops and online)

Learn through on-line modules, which you access at your leisure, combined with regular interactive workshops. You can complete the certificate in as little as 12 months and the diploma in 24 months.

What do you cover on the programme?

The Human Resources Development programme includes four core modules which are the same as those in the Human Resource Management programme. There are then four different specialist L&D focussed modules.

Core modules

  • HR Management in Context – You’ll gain an understanding of the environmental contexts of contemporary organisations within which managers, HR professionals and workers interact.
  • Leading, Managing and Developing People – This module explores people management and development and seeks to familiarise you with major contemporary research evidence on employment and effective approaches to HR and L&D practice.
  • Developing Skills for Business Leadership– The key purpose of this module is to encourage you to develop a strong sense of self-awareness of your own strengths and development needs as managers and colleagues.
  • Investigating a Business Issue from a HR Perspective – You’ll get an understanding of the key elements of professional competency, including strategic awareness, business orientation and a concern with adding value through HR practice.

Specialist modules:

  • Learning and Talent Development – You will develop a critical understanding of the contribution of learning and talent development policies and strategies as well as intellectual, social, professional and personal skills to perform effectively in associated professional roles.
  • Designing, Delivering and Evaluating L&D Provision – This module develops a critical understanding of the role and influence of a range of contextual factors on the design, delivery and evaluation of the L&D plans and interventions.
  • Leadership and Management Development – This module focuses on the development of leadership and management in facilitating organisational, team and individual change and growth.
  • Knowledge Management and Organisational Learning – This module explores the connection between learning and knowledge to develop a critical understanding of the concepts of knowledge management and of organisational learning and associated theories.

What are your options after this programme?

Once you’ve finished this Diploma programme, you will have achieved the highest standard of professionalism within the L&D field. You will also have achieved the knowledge required for CIPD Chartered membership. If you then have the relevant work experience, you can apply for a membership assessment (assessing your workplace activities and behaviours) and if successful, you will be upgraded to Chartered Member (MCIPD). You can find out more at www.cipd.co.uk.

What are your payment options?

If you are being funded by your employer, full payment of the programme is needed before your first workshop. Our programme advisors can help you build a business case for your employer outlining the benefits of studying a CIPD qualification. Call us on 0330 660 0220 to find out more.

If you are a self-funder, there’s a variety of flexible payment plans, with low deposits and the option of instalments over 6 to 48 months. For a personalised payment plan, please call one of our programme advisors who can talk you through all your options.
