Understand business like no other.

Training and development courses to propel your business knowledge and career.

HR Learning & Development Courses.

WDR’s core expertise is leadership and management development, digital learning and the “business” of L&D. Many of our consultants have years of professional L&D experience at senior levels in large, international companies. WDR have trained hundreds of L&D professionals over the last nearly 50 years and we continue to innovate in the area of training Learning Professionals.

There are plenty of “train-the-trainer” courses for L&D Professionals but very few courses specifically designed for senior learning professionals managing a corporate learning function. The WDR Diploma in Learning Management was borne out of over 10 years of combined senior L&D expertise across our consultants, and a desire to share that knowledge and experience with other learning professionals. Spread over 6-months, this Diploma provides time for participants to fully integrate their learning at each stage of the training.
