L&D Assistant

In Short

I am now a lot more confident in my job and feel that I am doing it right. I am looking forward to carrying on developing, as DPG made me realise how important learning something new is and how interesting and fun it can be.

Why did you choose DPG?

It was my manager that choose DPG for me and offered this course to me, but now that I have had a fantastic journey on this programme, I would most definitely choose it myself! I am already considering the next step and next qualification for myself with DPG.

CIPD Level 5 Human Resources Management

What were your goals of starting the programme?
My goal was to learn more about my profession which is in a Learning and Development field and to gain my professional qualification. However, I have gained much more from it. I met some great people and learned so many new things, not only from people/facilitators on the course, but also from the DPG community. My learning experience has changed entirely as before I had a negative attitude to learning and with DPG all of this changed to a very positive and relaxed feeling.

How did the programme help your career and where are you now?
This programme has helped my career a lot as I had little knowledge about the L&D industry and no professional qualification to do my job. Now that I have completed this course, I am not only qualified to do my job, but also very knowledgeable.

What would you say to anyone thinking of doing a programme with DPG?
I would say THIS IS THE RIGHT CHOICE! DPG is a fantastic organisation and has some fantastic people working there and I believe that DPG helped me change my future.
