Head of BBC Training to Speak at Learning Technologies Conference


Training for its own sake will never give a workforce the skills it needs to succeed, BBC Head of Training, Nigel Paine will tell delegates at the Learning Technologies 2005 Conference later this month.

is to speak about 'The Learning Organisation' at Learning Technologies 2005.

In a session on The Learning Organisation, Nigel Paine will emphasise the importance of having a strategic approach to learning and development.

"Organisations today increasingly recognise that they rely on their people as never before," he will tell the conference. "Whether in the public or private sector, in manufacturing or in services, an organisation's people are what set it apart, nationally and globally. This is where learning is crucial - in giving a workforce the skills to succeed. Training for its own sake, though, will never achieve this.

"The power of learning comes when it is part of a coherent learning and development plan coupled to organisational strategy. Achieving this requires knowing the value of people to a business, knowing where skills gaps are, and being able to build personal development plans that bridge those gaps. Not only that, it requires the constant measuring and reporting back of progress."

Other speakers at the Learning Technologies 2005 Conference include Chris Yapp of Microsoft and Dr Rob Yeung of. The exhibition and conference takes place at Olympia 2 on January 26-27.
