I'm about to start a HR Graduate scheme where I will rotate across different areas of HR, but the area that interests me most is Training & Development, eventually I'd love to be at consultant or managerial and deliver in house training / create course content - I understand you do need to have gained years of expertise before you can do that.
Can anyone tell me what kind of levels a graduate can imagine to start at, or how long has it taken you to move through the career paths? Also what qualifications are desired for professionals in senior T&D, i.e. is a basic CHRP qualification enough or can you build on this?
Any guidance appreciated!
If you are looking to start a career in L&D, it would be good to get yourself a professional qualification in L&D. The CIPD qualification that I believe would be suitable for you would be the Certificate in L&D Practice (CLDP) as although is is aimed at L&D professionals, it contains both HR and L&D modules.
The Certificate in L&D Practice has been designed as a specialist qualification in the field of L&D. It is designed for people who are practitioners in Training, and who require a qualification which is well recognised. It may also suitable for those who are aspiring to become trainers.
If you would like to talk about this further I can give you more infomration. Call me on 02079779200, I work for a company that offers such qualification.
