What to expect from this course

If you are an experienced people practitioner and are keen to develop the strategic development skills needed to lead and influence others, the Advanced Diploma in Strategic Learning and Development is right for you.

This qualification has eight units in total. The first four are core units based on the CIPD Profession Map, the next three will help you develop specialist L&D knowledge, and then the final choice is an optional unit which you can select from a variety of topics. This diploma can take as little as twelve months to complete and leads to CIPD Chartered Membership.

We are one of the few CIPD centres that offer the full range of L&D units and you’ll be taught by experts with years of experience in Learning & Development.

You can start any time and work at your own pace by taking advantage of our fully flexible HR and L&D online training or enjoy live virtual learning sessions at our renowned facilitated workshops.

Michaela did a fantastic job leading us through the day. It was my first live webinar, so before attending, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect.

Again another great course. I was a little worried of having a full day after two shorter days for the first unit. However, Lorraine kept me fully engaged throughout. She has lots of positive energy and made everything seem super easy! By using real life examples I felt like it all helped cement the information.
