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.

A CIPD qualification builds your capability by equipping you with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to make an impact at the relevant level.

It also leads to a CIPD membership grade which demonstrates your commitment to maintaining capability through ongoing professional development (through CPD, networking and access to the latest content and resources).

Our own training delivery arm, CIPD Learning, offers more than 50 online, blended or face-to-face courses covering topics relevant to people professionals, such as HR, L&D, organisation design, employment law and more.

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.
