Graduate Talent Development Programmes
We work in partnership with your organisation to develop a tailored, business-focused graduate programme to nurture your people professionals.
Building for the future
A graduate training scheme is an excellent opportunity for businesses to nurture talent and encourage growth within their organisation. Not only are such talent development programmes popular with graduates, encouraging the brightest and the best from different backgrounds to apply, but they also build a pipeline of talent for the future.
Reed Learning has a long history of working with large corporations to implement successful graduate schemes in a variety of areas, such as Accountancy and Human Resources. Our programmes have been proven to add value and enable graduates to rapidly progress and achieve their goals.
An integral part of many graduate training programmes is the provision of a nationally recognised professional qualification. We can incorporate professional qualifications (such as a CIPD Advanced Diploma for HR professionals) into our graduate schemes.
Attracting, developing, and retaining the best people is important for all organisations and will provide a great return on your investment. We will work with you to ensure that your graduates can achieve their full potential.
How our graduate schemes work
Reed Learning is an established learning and development provider with a long history of delivering excellent results, based on over 50 years in the business. We work hard to integrate graduates’ practical experiences in their placement with the knowledge and skills they gain throughout their qualification.
We also have unparalleled HR knowledge and experience of successfully delivering training for CIPD qualifications. Thanks to the expertise of the CIPD tutors along with their flexibility and work-based applied approach, graduates achieve some of the best results in the industry and many have gone on to enjoy significant success in their HR careers.
Whether the objective is to attract the people professionals of the future or to support the current demands of the business, it is important to develop a scheme which will get the best out of your graduates.
From the start, our specialists will work with you to design a talent development programme which meets your organisational needs. Our experience allows us to tailor the scheme to your special requirements, working in partnership to determine which course or qualification will best fit your business and employees’ need.
If you want your graduates to be future business leaders, then give them a framework of core competencies to work towards. Our flexible learning approach allows your graduates to choose the order of their modules to match their work projects so they can apply their knowledge to real business problems as part of their study.
Graduates normally go through a tight selection programme within their organisation before they are successful. Those who get through then embark on a range of rotations within the company, each based in different topic areas to provide the maximum amount of experience.
Working in cohorts of between eight and ten candidates, depending on the size of the organisation, graduates study for their qualification through a bespoke mix of workshops, webinars and online learning as well as being supported by a Reed Learning personal tutor. Candidates benefit from working in a company cohort and learn from their peers.
Having the academic knowledge and the business experience is a win-win situation for both the graduates and the organisation.
All graduates enrolled with us are supported throughout their learning journey by a dedicated expert adviser who guides them through the assessment process in regular 1:1 sessions. In addition, they attend workshops delivered by subject experts to help them prepare for any examinations.
Candidates have access to a wide range of study skills resources and regular one-hour discussion forums to help them achieve qualification success. Developed specifically to provide people with greater flexibility to learn at a time they choose, online materials include workbooks, recorded webinars on different topics presented by our experts along with videos, podcast and links to further information are all available 24/7 on our Virtual Learning Environment.

CIPD Level 3 Case Study Courtney Jones
Studying for her qualification alongside a full-time job was hard at first, but support from her adviser Leanne helped her to keep going. Leanne was “such a great teacher, who would always respond in a timely manner” and made Courtney feel that there “were no stupid questions”.
