In a fast-changing world, it’s increasingly important to ensure workforces reskill and stay up to date with the latest thinking. A key part of supporting others with continuing their professional development is creating the optimum culture, environment and blend of learning approaches. However, with more content available than ever before, sifting through it all requires specific knowledge and skills.

Content curation is an effective learning design and delivery method that ensures the right information is made available to different learner groups. This course will show you how a content curation strategy helps organisations to upskill, reskill and keep workforces ahead of the game. It is essential for those seeking to curate the best content from inside and outside of an organisation and make it easily available to learners.

Knowing how to create, co-create and curate content with subject matter experts to meet learning needs will result in effective learner engagement, learning transfer and impact at individual and organisational level.

All CIPD Learning courses will automatically provide you with access to the CIPD Learning Hub, our online learning platform, for 24 months.

The hub will house your course content, as well as useful resources, tools, and a community of professionals that you can tap into to support your learning and continual development.
