When can I start using the hub?


When we launch fully in 2022, we’ll serve you the right mix of content, peer-to-peer collaboration and ongoing communities of practice, as and when you need it – from bite-size self-directed learning to comprehensive programmes featuring virtual classrooms, workshops and social learning.

At present, if you are a member, the hub houses your free member courses. New Essential Insights courses are bite-size courses enabling you to quickly grasp a subject. Plus, you can develop the defining behaviours of our profession with our eight refreshed core behaviours Introductory Programmes.

We have launched the hub to our members with their free member benefits available. However, the hub will be for everyone, or any team, looking to develop and sustain the knowledge and behaviours you need to become a credible expert in people at work – whether you’re a CIPD member or not.

CIPD members get free access to the hub and some of the core learning content, with additional content available to purchase according to your unique needs. Other customers will be able to purchase learning content on a pay-as-you-go or subscription basis.

The hub helps you to take control of your own career-long professional development, gives you access to expert learning experiences at your fingertips, and helps you maximise your credibility and impact.

As a member, you get free access to a range of core learning content, including a continually updated library of Essential Insights on a range of topics and Introductory Programmes aligned with the eight core behaviours of the Profession Map.

The hub helps you to fulfil your membership requirements by making it easier than ever to make your ongoing professional development a day-to-day, career-long priority. It’s part of our commitment to support you throughout your career and help you to maximise your organisational impact. Our new self-assessment, learning plan and reflection tools will help you understand your individual professional development objectives and achievements.

We help you create scalable learning programmes to meet your unique business needs – either in your own branded area of the hub or integrated into your own existing learning site. Contact our employer solutions team to find out more.

If you are a CIPD member and have a CIPD account, you can use your existing credentials to login to the hub here.

We’re also sending email invitations to all CIPD members with instructions on how to access the hub, so keep an eye on your inbox.

When roll-out is complete, the hub will be easy to find via the homepage and top-level menu bar on all of the CIPD’s websites.

The CIPD Learning Hub is available anywhere in the world as long as you have internet access and all of the content is based on the Profession Map, the international standard for people professionals to thrive in a changing world of work.

When you become a member, we will set up an account for you on the CIPD Learning Hub. This process can take up to two working days.

However, to log in to the Learning Hub, you will have to first set up a CIPD account. Once you have an account, you can use the same credentials to log in to the Learning Hub.
