Welcome to the Coventry and Warwickshire Branch
It's great to have you all onboard and we hope that through this area you can discover more about your local CIPD branch in Coventry and Warwickshire.
The branch holds regular meetings throughout the year for its 2100 members. To find out more about the events we've got coming up in the next few months please visit the Branch Events page.
You can get the most out of your membership by being actively involved with the branch at a number of levels. Likewise, everything you see on our page is brought to you by a dedicated team of volunteer members.
Free member only events
The branch offers a programme of events aimed at promoting members' education, development and networking. These include employment law updates and seminars, skills development, reward, H&S, learning and development and networking as well as workshops for those wishing to revisit their CPD or upgrade their membership.
Members can book all events online using the 'Events' link as displayed on the right hand side.
Special interest group for the self employed
Members of the SIG are generally self-employed or lone human resources or training personnel who run or work in a small business. It has been identified by the CIPD that this unique group within the membership requires skills for improving marketing and networking as well as for helping them to win business.
The branch provides SIG members with networking opportunities to share ideas and to meet others in similar work circumstances and development events specifically aimed at the learning and development needs identified for SIG members.
Join us at one of our get togethers; aSIGnations take place in the bar area of the Stratford Manor Hotel on the Warwick Road on the first Monday of every month (or second if it clashes with a bank holiday) 10:00-11:30. No need to commit in advance, just go a long to meet other SIG members in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
Special interest group for HR leaders
The HR Leaders' Group Forum provides key skill development and networking opportunities for the CIPD Fellow and Companion Members in the Coventry and Warwickshire branch.
The group has 40+ active members with diverse HR and training roles in organisations around Warwickshire. For further information contact us or find us on LinkedIn by searching Coventry and Warwickshire CIPD - Senior Practitioners Group and request to join.
The branch runs a local mentoring scheme for CIPD members and is looking for new mentors and mentees to take part.
Employment law updates
The branch holds regular Employment Law Updates. In 2016 there will be a Breakfast Bites session in February, a Hot Topics session in August and a Mock Tribunal in October. For further information please see the branch events page.
Support for local education centres
Support for those studying CIPD qualifications is maintained through our close links with local education centres and through our annual Student Awards.
Join our branch committee
These services could not be organised and maintained without the support of local members who have volunteered to serve on the branch committee. Offers of support are always welcome - as well as being fun, participation on the committee offers the chance for individuals to network, develop their skills and confidence. That way we all benefit!
If you would like to learn more about the work of the Committee or have any suggestions for future events please contact us.
