Under the working title 'The Great Training Robbery?' the BLA Conference will start with a frank exposé of the failings of much of training and learning, with all too frequent low achievement and success rates. This begs the question: what can we do about it? The conference will then concentrate on the four themes of performance management, pedagogy, evaluation and marketing, as positive steps to support effective outcomes.

Studies into the effectiveness of training and learning frequently put success rates no higher than 25%, and some place it as low as 10%, yet the amounts spent on education and training are huge. With a failure to demonstrate achievable results and the large amount of money being spent on education, training, learning & development, it is increasingly important that training & learning is seen to lead to successful outcomes.

Speakers include representatives from; BBC Training & Development, Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), First Group, DLA Piper, Cranfield University (Defence Academy), QA Training & Consulting, Academee and The Fourth Level

Commenting on this premier event, David Wolfson, Chair of the BLA said, “BLA members know that the amount of training is growing. But there’s a feeling that it may be money badly spent. Is that because training isn’t efficient, or is training the wrong way to get improved business performance? This is a conference looking at just those problems."

The conference will help delegates to:

• look at personal pathways to develop performance management;
• review the importance of pedagogy to support learning design, individual styles and sustainable performance improvement;
• understand the vital role evaluation plays in justifying expenditure on training;
• use marketing as an essential step for motivating people to learn;
• review an approach to changing the way staff think about their organisation and their part in delivering its success.

The conference is designed to bring together professionals in all sectors of learning, development, education and training in the UK and Internationally, who are looking to engage with each other and shape the learning agenda in 2006.

The BLA is a centre of expertise that produces best practice examples, identifies trends and disseminates information on both innovative and well-established techniques and technologies for learning. The aim is to synthesise existing knowledge, develop original solutions and disseminate this to a wide cross sector membership.
