Self-managed learning still has a long way to go


Fears that the trend towards self-managed learning will lead to organisations avoiding responsibility for supporting learning in the workplace seem to be borne out by a new study from the CIPD.

Although the need for self-managed learning is widely recognised, the reality has a long way to go to catch up with the theory, according to the report.

The report from the CIPD finds that 96% of Training Managers are encouraging self-managed learning in the workplace, but that only 35% of them are setting aside funds for self-managed learning. The results suggest that responsibility for funding self-managed learning is being laid on the individual themselves.

Similar concerns were raised in yesterday's TrainingZONE online workshop run on the topic.

The government's has launched a number of schemes in the last year aimed at supporting individual learning. Around 450,000 people have so far signed up for an Individual Learning Account, to which the government is donating £150 towards courses in return for a £25 contribution from an individual.
