Course Overview:

The Bachelor of Learning Development and Training (BLDT) is a three year undergraduate degree. The course prepares graduates for a career in learning and development, professional education, human resource development or industry training. Learning and development professionals are employed in industries as diverse as banking and finance, law, accounting, tourism and hospitality, telecommunications, retail, registered training organisations (RTOs), superannuation, universities, TAFE institutes, management consultancies, mining and trades and government departments. Professionals already working in the field will be able to build on their expertise, applying their enhanced knowledge to their current positions or to assist them in changing career direction. High achieving graduates have the option of completing a Masters course in Training and Development. The course is available both full-time and part-time and classes will be offered during the day and in the early evening to accommodate those students wishing to undertake the course part-time.

There is no further intake into this course.

Objectives: The course seeks to equip students to: apply and adapt key concepts and theories of adult education and learning within the changing contexts of professional learning, development and training; research and evaluate the professional learning and development environment; appraise the business context; understand the diversity of the global knowledge economy and workplace and take action to enhance the learning environment; analyse the interplay between group, individual and organisational dynamics and assess how these can be addressed through learning and development programs; plan and develop professional education programs appropriate to a variety of business contexts; develop high standards of interpersonal communication appropriate to the professional education environment, including oral presentations and written materials; develop and maintain professional relationships and collaborative work practices; and engage in ongoing critical reflection as a means of continuing professional development and life long learning. Through these objectives students should be able to make significant contributions to the Australian community, business, industry, educational and government organisations.
