At our first APPNZ L&D Meet Up we discussed what challenges are happening in the world of L&D, what would make NZ competitive from an L&D space and what would help the profession in New Zealand. We also looked at the proposed Learning Professional Development programme.
There were some heated discussions, with great ideas shared, interesting issues raised and the start of a new L&D community being built!
The groups we split into came up with the following:
The Challenges of working in L&D
: People Matter
What L&D challenges to you have?
What would make New Zealand competitive/better from an L&D perspective?
What would help the L&D profession in NZ?
FOOTNOTE: APPNZ has worked to deal with some of these challenges by:
Launching a comprehensive Professional Development Programme for L&D professionals, and starting work wit the University sector to design and implement a formal L&D Tertiary qualification.
Having a section on this website that provides clarity around role definitions and salary bands for different roles.
Marketing to businesses what skills and experience a qualified L&D professional has and what value they can add to your organisation.
