Diploma in Organisational Learning

To keep up with the rapid fluctuations and higher challenges of the 21st century business landscape, organisations must become dynamic and responsive in their approach to learning.


We, as L&D Professionals, need to help our organisations understand learning as a competitive tool and to encourage the paradigm shift that recognises learning, not as a cost but as sound business strategy.


This qualification provides an in-depth understanding of a range of concepts relating to the role of L&D within organisations. It also helps you develop the skills that will increase your personal success and also increase your impact within the organisation (or with clients). It will give you a depth of knowledge and expertise that will enable you to develop specialist skills.
