CIPD Advanced level qualifications: Learning & Development

CIPD Advanced level qualifications in Learning and Development are the flagship qualifications for this professional area and are widely recognised by employers. 

Completing a postgraduate qualification means you will have a great depth of knowledge, an understanding of the context of Learning and Development and the leadership, management and development of employees. You will develop and use skills in critical analysis and reflection and know how to develop L&D strategy that will drive organisational performance.

The L&D pathway gives options for studying a number of topics including Learning and Talent Development, Organisational Design and Development and Knowledge Management and Organisational Learning.
