Course content

This programme is suitable for existing L&D Managers, or anyone involved in designing and delivering Learning and Development Strategies or reporting on L&D Solutions. This programme is ideal for taking the next step into L&D Seniority.

DPG’s learning model is innovative, utilising new and creative learning methods such as the Virtual Business District. Learners also get free, lifetime access to the Award-Winning DPG Community, which engages them with peers and industry experts, as well as tonnes of learning materials.

The programme is fully supported by expert programme facilitators, available whenever you need them. There will also be live webinars and Q&A sessions available to complement the programme.

What is the difference between the Award/Certificate/Diploma?

  • The Award allows you to build up your programme, module by module, choosing any of the core or specialist modules. The Award route is ideal if you simply want a taster of the programme, or to refresh your skills.
  • For the Certificate you must complete 4 modules for a Certificate (from either the specialist or core modules). Most learners select the core module route as this enables them to complete their Diploma within 2 years.
  • The Diploma is the full programme, including 4 Core Modules and 4 specialist Modules.

Is this programme right for me?

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.
