ITOL Diploma in Organisational Learning
To keep up with the rapid fluctuations and higher challenges of the 21st century business landscape, organisations must become dynamic and responsive in their approach to learning. We, as L&D Professionals, need to help our organisations understand learning as a competitive tool and to encourage the paradigm shift that recognises learning, not as a cost but as sound business strategy. This qualification provides an in-depth understanding of a range of concepts relating to the role of L&D within organisations. It also helps you develop the skills that will increase not only your personal success but also increase your impact within the organisation (or with clients). This ITOL diploma will provide a depth of knowledge and expertise to enable proactive contribution. It will also develop specialist skills enabling you to ensure aligned, integrated, effective and sustained learning at all levels.
Who will this programme benefit?
Learning and Development Managers and Heads of Training who have the overall responsibility for training assessment, design and output within an organisation.
The programme is built on the foundation of a four day face-to-face workshop supported by blocks of Personal Development and some self-learning. In addition time will be required to conduct a work related assignment and to produce a report by way of a presentation. Throughout the Programme each participant will carry out a work related assignment and keep a Project Diary. This will be assessed at an Assignment Presentation during the final workshop. A Knowledge Test will also be set. Participants will also be required to keep a Reflective Learning Journal of their involvement on the course. The workshops are highly participative, using facilitated discussion, presentations, case studies and group work. The workshops promote reflective review, and encourage participants to find opportunities to apply the learning in the workplace.
