Course Detail

What is L&D?

The “Learning and Development” (L&D) department manages the training, learning and development initiatives of businesses. It seeks to create a culture of continuous learning and growth through programmes that enable organisations to constantly evolve and develop. L&D’s responsibilities vary depending on the company, but often include:

  • Implementing learning strategies
  • Designing e-learning courses, workshops and plans
  • Upskilling the workforce
  • Enhancing employee participation and engagement

Essentially, the L& D department’s job is to make sure the company and everyone in it are working at their best.
