Workforce L&D Insight Hub
Here you will find a wealth of information and resources – from blog articles and interviews, to guides and reports – all focusing on key areas of professional learning and development (L&D).
We know that L&D is going through unprecedented change in response to drivers such as the impact of digital technology, the introduction of the apprenticeship levy, the growing multi-generational workforce, specific skills gaps and low levels of productivity in the UK.
In addition, there’s an increasing need to align L&D strategy with business strategy, embrace learning analytics and build robust talent pipelines. With so many demands and pressures, it’s understandably difficult to keep up with it all.
So, we thought we’d help you navigate these issues and more, by creating the Workforce L&D Knowledge and Insight Hub. Using Open University research, academic insight and industry expertise, these resources have been designed to keep you informed of the latest L&D topics and trends, to help you transform your workforce.
