Tony has founded, grown and sold multiple HR related businesses through which he has consulted to many executive teams advising on HR strategy as well as supporting HR managers to attract, develop and retain key talent to give them a competitive advantage in their respective fields. A member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) for over 14 years, Tony holds a Postgraduate Advanced Diploma in Human Resource Development and supplements this by drawing on his experience in his lessons by providing useful insights into HR practice. He is an L&D specialist with considerable recruitment and employee engagement experience and continues to provide consultancy services in these fields in addition to the work that he does at WestKing. Tony has carefully selected and manages a team of CIPD qualified and highly experienced tutors to deliver your learning experience.
Your tutors are engaged for a number of reasons, including their ability to bring specialist skills and experience to teach on the course. You will be introduced to your dedicated tutor on the first night of your course.
This course will commence in September with weekly virtual classes supplemented with a monthly ‘Face to Face’ class to be held at Westminster Kingsway College’s Victoria Centre, 76 Vincent Square, Westminster, London from 6pm until 9pm. All other weeks will be delivered virtually via zoom. If you don’t want to journey into London for the monthly Face to Face class, you can also attend it virtually using zoom if you prefer.
