We recommend:

CIPD Advanced Award in Designing, Delivering and Evaluating Learning and Development Provision

Tutor: Andrew Larkin


To develop, design and launch successful L&D programmes, an up-to-date knowledge of theory and emerging trends is needed. Crucially, this knowledge has to be paired with both an appreciation of business drivers and a strategic mindset.

From identifying a learning need through to establishing return on investment, the Learning and Development Advanced Award will equip you with a comprehensive understanding of how to design and deploy successful learning activities. Training will focus on developing your analytical skills and use of reflection to develop practical solutions to a range of common business challenges.

This is a fast-track qualification programme, which means you will only attend one week of face-to-face workshops with the remaining assessment completed within eight weeks after the workshops.
