We have been asking our members from across the industries the reasons why they became a CPD provider. This CPD Member case study was provided by EST HR. For more information, please visit their CPD Member Directory page.
Please provide us with a brief overview of your organisation. What do you do?
Our organisation provides outsourced HR support and project management including a learning and organisational development division that provides training, coaching and consultancy in the areas of strategy, growth and transformational change.
Why did you become a CPD provider?
We wanted to provide a learning and organisational development offering that was pragmatic and practical in approach. After seeking feedback from a range of businesses, we embarked on designing effective learning programmes which aligned to current business needs as opposed to being constricted by indicative content, often set by other providers, however not necessarily connecting with an organisation's vision or objective. The CPD accreditation also allowed us to assess competency and knowledge as an outcome of training via Reflective Learning Journals in place of time and resource consuming reports which are indicative of a more traditional and historic approach.
With CPD's support we have been able to establish a wide ranging training offering from 6 module programmes in HR Essentials and The Competent Manager Programme, with the flexibility to offer clients the opportunity to attend on a singular module basis also. This really breathed life into engaging clients to work with us in an agile and cost effective way. The accreditation has also afforded us the opportunity to offer half day programmes in areas such as Managing Menopause, Managing Remote and Hybrid Working and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion modules which again clients very much appreciate.
With the speed at which CPD work with us, we are able to react quickly to emerging and current needs for employee development whilst also maintaining the accreditation status for each and every individual supported by the CPD Certification Service.
How did you implement CPD accreditation in your organisation?
CPD provided great support in providing us with resources and guidance in how to promote the value of the accreditation. We have adopted an approach of reflecting the benefits of a CPD learning programme in the overviews of our courses and in our training needs analysis with clients.
How has CPD helped your organisation achieve its learning objectives?
The CPD accreditation has added value to our learning and development offering to clients which has had a positive impact on the credibility of our programmes in a highly competitive and professional environment.
