Delivering Learning and Development Activities is a CIPD accredited module designed to provide an understanding of the essential stages of preparing for and delivering an inclusive and effective L&D activity for a group of learners. It begins with consideration of the practical preparations required to be credible as a trainer, including ensuring own readiness to deliver the activity and the availability of all resources and materials. The unit moves on to explore the concept of a positive learning climate and the range of steps that can be taken by a trainer towards creating and maintaining this. The course is completed across two days in the classroom and includes assessment through delivery of a group based L&D activity.   The course is then followed by 14 hours of elearning and a short assignment.

Creating and maintaining a positive learning environment is critical in delivering learning and development activities. This course will equip delegates with the knowledge and skills required to deliver planned learning and development activities. The module will cover adult learning principles and the learning cycle, the importance of creating and maintaining a positive learning environment, and the knowledge and skills required for the actual delivery of an activity or session. Students will develop a learning and development session and deliver this to demonstrate their competence in conducting such activities. 

Students will understand:

  • How to create an environment conducive to learning;
  • Planning and delivering a learning and development programme activity to individuals and groups;
