Harness AEB funding

changes and collaborate

on bespoke curriculums

Utilising Adult Education Budget (AEB) funding

continues to prove an exceptionally effective

means to upskill workforces. However, too

many employers do not make the most of their

funding; there was a £63m underspend in the

AEB last year.

At the same time, best practice in workforce

learning continues to evolve at an accelerating

pace. Disruptive technologies such as Artificial

Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR) and 'bots'

will have a significant impact on L&D. This is

welcome, although we can often lose sight of

how to access, much less harness, what is

readily available to us.

What practices should employers prioritise and

how do we get up to speed and utilise what is

already available to achieve our workforce

development goals?

Adapting your training when flexible L&D is

critical

With the pace of workplace change intensifying,

the contemporary adult learner understands

that investing in their continued professional

development is as important as ever.

Why? Because they see new 'best practice'

shaping up around them, the new technology

that's embedded into their role, the increasing

job competition and everyone's heightened

expectation of 'self-accountability'. They know

that they must take responsibility for

broadening their skills and keeping up to date

with their career progression.

As such, HR departments continue to face a

'war on talent'. They are endeavouring to

provide the right training and progression

opportunities needed to recruit potential

employees and retain existing talent, ultimately

achieving an organisational culture that

prioritises career development.

Accessing the right training gets lost amid

the frenzy

People are just trying to do their best to

navigate through hectic schedules and

competing organisational priorities. We

continue to face the incessant "We're too busy,

no time for that." problem.
