Female with Digital Transformation

Programme Overview

The Strategic People Professional Programme is a 12-month programme (+ End Point Assessment), designed for senior leaders specialising in HR, L&D, or OD.

The collaboration between Imperial College Business School and Corndel combines academic excellence with personalised coaching, providing a unique blend of business school thinking and practical skills. Join us for a transformative journey, integrating world-class education with tailored mentoring through Corndel's renowned coaching model.

Who is the Programme for?

Our programme is designed for senior leaders specialising in HR, L&D, or OD. These leaders play a pivotal role in implementing and evaluating people policies and practices aligned to the needs of the organisation and its employees. Our programme is intended for those who drive organisational performance, growth, and effectiveness by creating optimal working environments and culture.

Please note that our application process is geared towards organisations rather than individuals. We recommend reaching out to your HR team to explore the possibility of using the apprenticeship levy to enrol in one of our programmes as part of a cohort. By collaborating directly with organisations, we aim to create a collective learning experience that benefits both the organisation and its members.
