Learning and development managers handle the training and professional development of company employees
Salaries depend on location, employer and level of responsibility.
Entry into learning and development is possible without a degree but relevant experience and skills will be necessary. Some people work their way up from roles such as assistant training officer or administration assistant. Other people who choose to go into this profession are graduates of university degrees and HNDs or have a Welsh NVQ/HNC or Scottish equivalent SNVQ. Business-related subjects or courses in human resources are useful.
Those with a masters degree or diploma recognised by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) will have a better chance of gaining employment.
To become a training and development officer, you often need to have gained three or four years experience in a related junior role.
