L&D will never be the same again

L&D will never be the same again

For so many Learning professionals, the almost overnight shift to remote working last year resulted in rapid organisational learning delivery shifts. In 2020, a survey by the Fosway Group found that 94% of L&D professionals had to change their organisation’s learning strategy in response to the pandemic, with two-thirds having to make significant changes.

The same survey concluded that L&D will never be the same again with only 5% of respondents thinking their learning strategy, investment and resourcing will go back to what it was before the pandemic. The pandemic has led to reductions in overall learning provision and spending even if a higher proportion is delivered online.

Join us to explore how you can develop your L&D Support on a budget.

We’re delighted to offer an online session on 3 February at 17:00 with Andrew Jacobs, a learning strategist, designer and deliverer. Andrew will walk you through some of the challenges modern learning professional face and allow you to work on your L&D business challenges.

Through a series of interactive exercises, Andrew will:

  • challenge you to think about your approach
  • ask you to describe what stops you from being more innovative
  • explore the value of nil/neutral cost solutions

A recognised leader in learning, Andrew is known for his innovative thinking about learning, training and technology and has significant experience acquired across various industries in both the public and private sectors.  Andrew has a specific understanding of developing online and digital learning solutions.
