What is a learning development practitioner?
A learning and development practitioner promotes continued professional development within the workplace. This is a person with a good understanding of adult and group dynamics, who can confidently design and deliver effective training programmes to an individual or team.
The learning and development practitioner typically has their own specific industry skills and expertise. This experience is combined with an understanding of teaching and learning to deliver training or education aligned with the organisation’s overall goals.
Learning and development practitioners work within a range of industry sectors, helping to improve workplace performance at every level.
Responsibilities can include:
- Identifying learning and education needs
- Aligning programmes with a business’s performance objectives
- Designing and delivering training
- Monitoring progress and providing constructive feedback
- Communicating effectively with individuals, teams and departments
- Promoting a passion for continued professional development.
