The L&D Practitioner will typically have expertise and competence in their specific field whether it be technical, vocational or behavioural (e.g., use of software, food preparation, working in teams). They are experts in identifying, creating and delivering appropriate training needs. 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 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.
