- What is the difference between a training adviser and a learning and development adviser?
Most generalist HR professionals will have some involvement with the training and development of their client base, but those who show a real flair for development will often decide to specialise quite early in their careers. The two major options are training adviser and learning and development adviser.
Training roles tend to focus predominantly on the delivery of training initiatives, either through a classroom or workshop session or through online or book-based training programs. Some trainers will be involved in both the design and delivery of the material that they train, and will also be involved with a training needs analysis prior to the development of material and an effective valuation once the material has been imparted to ensure its commercial impact is appreciated.
More recently there has also been a move more towards learning & development rather than training. Learning and development tends to incorporate a more rounded approach to learning rather than training and aims to involve the delegate in taking responsibility for their own learning rather than being a passive recipient. learning and development will often involve a more consultative approach and more ad hoc training design and coaching to tackle specific learning objectives tailored to individual needs.
