We are currently looking for a full-time permanent Learning and Development Manager to join our team.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a non-formal education and learning framework operating in more than 130 countries and territories around the world, through which young people’s achievements outside of academia are recognised and celebrated.
We at The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation are the engine that drives and supports the Award’s growth, access, and impact across the globe. We are committed to making the Award available to 1% of the youth population by 2023, which is 7.9 million young people. To achieve this, we are investing in the many adults and stakeholders who dedicate their time to mentor and guide young people through their Award Journey.
The purpose of this role is primarily to identify learning and training needs for the adults that support the Award network and develop content to meet those needs. It falls to the Learning and Development Manager, collaborating with our staff and Operators, to identify the skills and development required and plan to meet those needs by means of training, resources and materials, and other initiatives.
You will need to have previous experience in Learning and Development, talent consulting, or a related field. You will use a responsive and thoughtful approach to support the Foundation and help embed a culture of learning, reflection, and adaptation into its work. It is essential you understand the theory and practice of helping others learn, including how best to present information. You will draw on your technical research skills and manage relationships with both internal and external stakeholders. This role requires you to have experience of delivering in-person and virtual training to a variety of stakeholders with different learning styles and levels of understanding. This is a global role so it is essential that you are culturally sensitive and have experience of working with cultures other than your own.
