The role focus is often on the practical delivery of training. The L & D Practitioner will typically have expertise and competence in their specific field whether it be technical, vocational or behavioural (e.g. the use of software, food preparation, working in teams). They link the learning within their area of responsibility to business objectives and performance, understanding the learning cycle and working by it.
The role can be much more specialist, with a focus on and requiring in-depth expertise in a specific area of L & D such as learning design, e-learning or digital / blended learning. Whichever of these is an area of focus; the L & D Practitioner is future focused, understands the business context / culture and has a good grounding across the whole training and learning cycles.
The L & D Practitioner role typically exists in a wide range of organisations including private and public sector. The L & D Practitioner role supports the learning and development function to contribute to, and influence, improved performance in the workplace at an individual, team and organisational level. Typically the role would work alongside colleagues who specialise in Human Resources and often supported by an L & D Administrator (more junior role) and would report to Head of L & D or an L & D Manager. L & D Practitioners often work with subject matter experts in different parts of the business.
