Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to initiate, and implement, practices that support the improvement of learning strategies in an organisational context. It includes:

  • evaluating ways to improve learning practice, managing and monitoring the means by which to improve learning, analysing, and advancing adoption of improved learning practice
  • methods for improving learning practice, including developing individual staff members from the perspective of the organisation’s needs and imperatives, and enhancing outcomes for learners and candidates.

It applies to leaders or managers who use research, theoretical analysis and professional investigation, to identify ways in which to implement learning practices that build organisational capabilities within a small to medium-sized organisation, or to a significant unit of activity in a large organisation.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
