TAP Certificate in Managing Learning Transfer

Some researchers report that learners on corporate training programmes apply less than 20% of what they have learned to their jobs. If true, this represents a massive waste of time and money.

Organisational learning is more strategically important than ever before. The L&D function is increasingly under the spotlight to provide evidence that training interventions improve workplace performance. This means that we have to bridge the gap between what people learn on a formal learning programme and the application of that knowledge and skill to the job. This needs a coherent learning transfer model.

‘Managing Learning Transfer’ gives L&D managers and consultants the tools and means to drive learning interventions that result in measurable performance improvement. This offers L&D a great opportunity to spearhead improved business performance, whilst enhancing their own credibility and status across the organisation.
