We provide practical career support, guidance and advice to help improve capability and practice in HR and L&D and to help our members succeed in their careers. We also play a crucial role in promoting HR as a career and attracting new talent into the profession.

CIPD qualifications help give individuals the expert knowledge outlined in the CIPD Profession Map. Students can learn at their own pace and gain credit for their achievements with a range of flexible study options from a choice of 270 study centres across 300 locations around the world. Our short courses give you and your organisation the knowledge, skills and confidence to implement good HR, L&D and people management practices in your workplace.

Members tell us they like having the opportunity to learn from their peers and keep up to date with the latest thinking in the profession through our online Community, and at the hundreds of face-to-face events we host and speak at each year. Other valued CPD resources we provide include our how-to guides, factsheets, research reports and our monthly members' magazine, People Management.
