5. You’ll Need Adequate Support
Whether you’re learning online, in-person, or via a mix of hybrid learning, one thing is for certain: you want a CIPD provider that can offer you support if and when you need it.
This means choosing an organisation that has adequate facilitator or tutor support, ideally unlimited, so that you can ask questions and discuss any material or assignments you may need clarity on.
If you’re learning in-person or via the virtual route, it’s simple enough to ask questions as you learn, however, if you choose to study online, check to see the availability of online tutors that are associated with your course. You want them to be accessible, especially if you’re studying during odd hours.
To add, it’s also important to research who your course advisor, facilitator, or tutor will be. Do they have a background in HR or L&D? Will you feel confident learning from them? CIPD providers often provide information on who their tutors are and what they bring to the table.
You do, after all, want to know you’re learning from accredited industry experts who have confidence in the material they’re delivering and the provider they work for.
All in all, choosing the right CIPD provider really all comes down to you, your personal learning preferences, and the available time you have to study. We only hope that this blog has helped you know what to look for when making your final decision.
