Learning and Development


You’ll find here information on human resource and employee development, workplace learning, the learning and development function, the learning organisation and culture, learning theory and learning styles, learning interventions and apprenticeships.

Looking for an older report on learning or development which is no longer on the website? The full-text of all our research publications and surveys from 1999 onwards is available to CIPD members from our HR and L&D database.

In Spring 2015 we launched new CIPD qualifications in Learning and Development. These practical entry and intermediate level qualifications have been developed in consultation with the L&D profession, and cover subjects such as digital and collaborative learning and international L&D.

Leaders in Learning network – this free to attend network for senior L&D professionals meets quarterly to network, discuss and explore L&D themes, hear presentations from other network members and socialise. Professionals can join the network by invitation or application. If you would like to be a part of CIPD’s Leaders in Learning Network please email Andy Lancaster, Head of L&D at the CIPD.

Leading in Learning is a blog which offers thought-provoking perspectives from a mix of learning leaders and practitioners, the occasional guru and a monthly post from the CIPD L&D team.
