Why this course?

Training and development management (TDM) has evolved significantly over the past few years. In today’s competitive landscape, rapid innovation and the ever-increasing emphasis on the knowledge worker means that training and development has become a vital component of business strategy.

The modern career landscape is more dynamic than ever, and companies are increasingly realising the value of investing in the education and skills development of their employees. New learning methodologies, training tools, and online technologies have developed to meet the rising training needs of organisations. A demand for skilled individuals able to design and implement effective training programmes, and keep abreast of trends in the industry, has therefore developed.

Watch the below short video to meet HR and Training & Development specialist, John Wilter, who will be your guide and mentor throughout this course.
