The Learning and Performance Institute (LPI) has launched a Capability Map for the workplace learning sector which aims to define skill sets for workplace learning professionals.
The map enables learning professionals to self-assess skills across nine categories, against 27 pre-defined skills. Users are then able to create a personalised profile report which provides an overview of their current skills across four competency levels.
The LPI says the aim of the map is to create a ‘common-language’ for skills and personal development for workplace learning professionals.
Jane Hart, founder of the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies, and one of many contributors to the map, believes it will help users recognise a new wave of L&D skills: “As we move into a new era of workplace learning, learning professionals will need a range of new competencies and skills. The new LPI Capability Map will therefore provide a useful framework to help those in the profession understand what is required to become a competent practitioner.”
