CIPD Learner Stories: Katie Adams

Civil Service

In Short

Katie works as a Finance Training and Development Officer and has successfully completed her CIPD Level 3 in L&D in Northampton.

What made you chose this programme?

Being new to the role, which was solely training design and delivery, I wanted to have the most current knowledge, disciplines and methodologies.

The venue location for my programme was extremely convenient for me. A guaranteed pass upon attendance/completion of all workshops also appealed.

What did you enjoy most about your programme?

I really enjoyed my workshops, especially workshop 5. This was when the light bulb moments began and the workshop activities really stepped up a notch. My fellow learners and I were by now used to one another’s styles and it was just pure fun learning right up until, and during, the final assessment day!

How do you feel the programme has helped you?

I have been able to implement a lot of ideas directly into my current role, improving the training portfolio and materials with the skills I have learned.

I have influenced my team to move some classroom elements to on-line workshops (Webinars) and the response from the organisation was fantastic with over 100 people from across the world attending each session.

It just shows how much of a need there was for this knowledge and it’s great to know that my initiative reached so many staff members at minimum cost. The ROI is through the roof which has already been recognised in my appraisal.

What would you say to other people thinking about studying with DPG?
