Graduates and students will join local management development professionals in a learning event to be hosted at the University of Lincoln next week.

Members of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) will join staff and students at the university in Hull on Wednesday 11th February 2004.

The event will be led by Martyn Sloman from the CIPD headquarters in Wimbledon.

Martyn is an honorary professor at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, an honorary teaching fellow at Birkbeck College, University of London and an Industrial Fellow at Kingston Business School.

This is the first time that the university has hosted a learning event for the Humber branch of the CIPD.


“The university wishes to show its commitment to professional development within Hull through the Hull Centre for Management Development,” said Kate Plumb, Principal Lecturer in Human Resource Management.

“Members of the local CIPD branch support our students through contributing to seminars and supporting placement events such as the networking day held recently at our offices in George Street.”


Students are required to be members of the CIPD upon registering for the masters degree programme and during the final year of the undergraduate programme.

The Humber Branch also sponsors prizes for the best student at each level of the masters degree programme and for the final level of the undergraduate programme.
