National Diploma: Occupationally Directed Education, Training and Development Practices

This qualification is aimed at HR practitioners and Learning & Development practitioners across a variety of occupational and vocational learning environments. The programme is structured around modules to support flexibility, access and learner-directed learning.

Candidates may therefore participate in any one module and then, at a later date, enrol in any further module as and when suitable in order to complete the qualification.

Two thousand four hundred notional learning hours are required to achieve this qualification. Enrolment requirements applicable to candidates who wish to complete this qualification:

  • A minimum of two years of work experience
  • Applicants must be employed in an environment within which the learning can be applied

The programme begins with an online Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) pre-assessment, enabling current competence to be taken into consideration. Each module has been designed as an action-learning programme.

Group learning is recommended where participants map out their own learning schedule.

Each of the six modules is facilitated over a three to five day period. A learner support workshop is scheduled after each module to assist candidates in completing their assessment submissions.
