The ten northern England branches cover between them an area from the Scottish border down to Cheshire in the West and South Yorkshire in the East.

Our purpose is to share best practice, support branch chairs and committees in meeting their objectives and provide a voice and wider debate on the CIPD national agenda and its implementation.

The NAP committee includes representatives from each branch (usually the Chair). A key aim of the partnership is to facilitate high quality networking and CPD opportunities across the north and we achieve this through our regular meetings, an annual development day for all committee members and our annual conference.

Join us for a series of keynotes and workshops at York Racecourse on 9 & 10 June 2017 and for the Northern Area Partnership Annual Dinner & Awards on the evening of 9 June – always a truly special and memorable occasion.
