CIPD qualifications for Learning & Development (New – CDP)

New CIPD qualifications for Learning and Development

Late in 2009 the CIPD have announced some new qualifications that will supersede the CTP, Certificate in Training Practice. There will be two new qualifications for this market – a level 3 and a level 5 programme.

There are not much in the way of details at the time of writing this however the information given below is provided in good faith and as-is.

The announcement of these two programmes is a first for the CIPD, in that for the first time their qualifications are mapped  to the national framework model for professional qualifications. This opens a path for more focussed qualifications linked to the CIPD and the HR/ OD function.

 New Level 3 qualification – certificate in learning & development Practice (CLDP or CDP)

These programme are aimes at practitioners, those involved in the design and delivery of learning solutions

There appears to be some discrepancy in the documentation available as to the title of this course. I hope that they include the term “management” as this will enable providers and purchasers to apply for public funding where available. Table 1 contains the HRM content and is not reproduced here.

As soon as more information is available on these new qualifications from the CIPD I’ll let you know.
