Our HR and Learning & Development programmes are for HR and L&D professionals who want to broaden their experience and progress their careers. Whether you’re just starting your HR career or aiming for Chartered Membership, we’ll help you choose the course that best matches your experience.

All our CIPD courses are accredited by the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development), the world’s largest chartered professional body for human resources. CIPD is internationally respected and has more than 135,000 members.

We are one of the CIPD's largest approved centres and long established providers of CIPD courses.

We deliver a Masters (Msc) top-up programme in Strategic Human Resource Management in partnership with the University of Salford.

We pride ourselves on using the latest innovative learning design to provide you with the best possible learning experience. Our workshops and webinars are led by experienced tutors who are experts in their field and our learning materials, written exclusively for MOL by HR specialists, are fully aligned to the CIPD Profession Map.  We’ll work with you to create a progression pathway, so you can progress onto qualifications at higher levels, or make a horizontal progression to broaden your experience.

We’ll send you confirmation of your workshop/webinar dates with your programme confirmation email. Your course timetable will be on the VLE so you always have access to it.

We encourage the sharing of information in workshops, and on the VLE, so all our learners are able to understand a range of organisations and industries. Your course will not require you to share any sensitive commercial information and we recommend you do not say, or post, anything that you wouldn’t want to reach the public domain. If your organisation has a policy on sharing information you should follow this.

We really recommend you attend the assessment briefing webinars as they’ll help you understand the assessment brief and provide you with an opportunity to ask any questions.

If you can’t attend the live webinar session you’ll still be able to watch the webinar as a recording.

We are part of the largest not for profit learning enterprise of its kind.
This means we reinvest our resources to help you the learner, rather than pay dividends to shareholders.
