The Learning and Development (L&D) function in any organisation exists to ensure that the learning solutions on offer are aligned to the organisation’s objectives, offer the best opportunities for staff development and contribute to a positive learning culture in the organisation.
As a modern L&D professional, you are expected to have a broad range of skills and an understanding of the latest ways to engage staff through a variety of learning events.
This practical five-day course will explore all of the requirements of a successful L&D function and equip delegates with the confidence and inspiration to improve how staff learn and develop in their organisation. This will include exploring areas of learning such as coaching and mentoring, facilitation, training consultation and tools to assist in undertaking Learning Needs Analyses.
