Module 7DDE Designing, Delivering, and Evaluating Learning and Development Provision is available as an option under the Level 7 Advanced Diploma in Human Resource Management.
Purpose and Aim of the Module
Learning and development are frequently planned and delivered within a specific context. As a result, the module aims to foster a critical understanding of the role and influence of various contextual factors. These contextual factors are linked to the development, implementation, and evaluation of learning and development strategies and interventions.
A well-established body of knowledge and theory is established to facilitate learning processes and application in instructional design. The body of knowledge and theory also aids learning, which influences the design and delivery of learning and the development of plans and events. As a result, this established body of knowledge serves as a necessary component for this unit.
Essentially, the 7DDE module is intended to develop professional knowledge and skills required for effective performance in specialist roles. These specialized roles are concerned with the planning, delivery, and assessment of learning and development.
As a result, this module’s learners must critically reflect on theory and practice from an ethical and professional standpoint. Furthermore, the unit provides opportunities for learning application and a continuous process of professional development.

What is the Assessment Criteria?
Learners are evaluated using various methods to ensure that the learning outcomes are met in a way that improves their learning experiences. As a result, summative assessment is used to assess 50% of the module learning outcomes. The remaining learning outcomes are assessed through activities such as teaching, learning, and formative assessment. Among these activities are:
- Presentations in groups and individually
- Time-limited tests
- Viva Voce
Furthermore, in centres that have been approved for this method of assignment, a competency-based assessment may be used. They must, however, have occupationally competent assessors. In addition, they must select approved activities from the CIPD Assessment Bank or create their own.
Similarly, all centre-marked assessments must be moderated by an outside party to ensure that standards are judged compared to internal and external benchmarks.
