Personnel and Development (CIPD)

Human Resources, Learning and Development and Personnel Development is often referred to as 'people professions'. As such, people professionals support the vision and goals of the organisation through great people interventions. Since organisations are made up of people, their role is to empower an organisation’s people to thrive - both individually and collectively. While the nature of specific roles may vary, we believe in supporting all people professionals to champion better work and working lives.

Develop the knowledge and skills employers are looking for with us. CIPD qualifications and courses help you build your career and enhance your professionalism. When you learn through the CIPD, you access research-led insights from the world's leading HR and L&D experts, allowing you to challenge the status quo, inspire action and influence change.
