Interested in supporting HR&D in the North East get involved! Develop new skills and give back to the community

The North East of England Branch is a thriving community of members covering the NE, SR and DH postcode areas

We're proud of the inclusive community we have and are continually looking for ways to evolve our regional offer to best meet the needs of members. The branch runs a member to member mentoring programme and in recent years we have expanded our annual awards ceremony so that it recognises the breadth of professional practice, introduced an annual regional conference, and introduced an L&D special interest group (L&D Communicate). We're here for our members and share information on our events and activities via our social media channels. We're always open to exploring opportunities so if you have any ideas, suggestions or are keen to get involved let us know by emailing [email protected].

Branch Chairs - Sarah Carnegie, Chartered FCIPD, and Elouise Leonard Cross (Chartered FCIPD)
