The Postgraduate Diploma provides a thorough training for today's career development professional. It is approved by the Career Development Institute (CDI) as meeting the qualification requirement for the UK Register of Career Development Professionals. The course consists of six 20 credit modules.
This part-time PG Diploma can be completed over a period of between 14 and 36 months. A flexible approach is adopted to enable attendance if you are based overseas and/or with full-time work or other responsibilities. Each 20 credit module is taught via a blend of workshop-based and distance-learning. The workshops take place at the University of Warwick, usually over two days (key dates). You will start with the Career Development Theories module and attend between two and six workshops per year depending on how quickly you wish to move through the course.
The course involves engaging in workshops, independent study and virtual learning. There is significant individual support available through the course team. Assignments are project-based and are completed following each workshop.
Part-time international and EU applicants are welcomed. The course involves attendance in the UK at a minimum of 2 weekend workshops per year. We have welcomed applications from a range of countries including the UK, Ireland, Norway, France, Germany, Romania, Slovenia, USA, China and Australia.
Former students occupy a range of roles in the private and public sectors. Many students progress from the PG Diploma CDCS to the MA CDCS.
