The role of Learning & Development (L&D) is to identify, create and deliver appropriate training needs within an organisation. You will be working with the stakeholders / business managers.
Typically, this level 3 apprenticeship will take 15-18 months.
L&D Practitioners are typically involved with identifying learning/training needs, designing/sourcing training and learning solutions, delivering and evaluating training, and working with stakeholder/ business area managers. The role focus is often on the practical delivery of training. The Practitioner will typically have expertise and competence in their specific field whether it be technical, vocational or behavioural (e.g. use of software, food preparation, working in teams). They link the learning within their area of responsibility to business objectives and performance, understanding the learning cycle and working by it. The role can be more specialist, with a focus on and requiring in-depth expertise in a specific area of L&D such as learning design, e-learning or digital/blended learning. Whichever of these is an area of focus; the L&D Practitioner is future focused, understands the business context / culture and has a good grounding across the whole training and learning cycles.
The role typically exists in a wide range of organisations including private, public and third sector. It supports the learning and development (L&D) function to contribute to, and influence, improved performance in the workplace at an individual, team and organisation level. Typically, the role would work alongside colleagues who specialise in Human Resources (i.e. employee relations, reward, recruitment) often supported by an L&D Administrator (more junior role) and report to an L&D Business Partner / Consultant / Manager. L&D Practitioners often work with Subject Matter Experts in different parts of the business.
