Training Director

Training Director Jobs

It is impossible to overstate the importance of learning and development in a company, yet it is so often overlooked, resulting in people becoming disillusioned and seeking new employment when they stop progressing. The role of training director is a company’s assurance to both its employees and its own leadership, that they are committed to their development. That’s because training isn’t just about ensuring employees can do the jobs they are set; it’s also about letting them know they are appreciated, which in turn leads to retention.

A training director will therefore be involved with coming up with strategies for L&D, and making sure they bring their managers along with them. TDs cannot be expected to be involved too much in the hands-on training, so these relationships with the relevant managers will be essential, as will ensuring that they understand the training aims and strategies. They are also responsible for succession planning with line managers to ensure maximum productivity is maintained as promotions occur.

The skills required

Communication is at the forefront of the training director’s skill set. Creating training strategies can be complex, and needs to be communicated succinctly – employees need to see achievable goals broken down clearly. You will also be required to liaise with internal and external suppliers, with communicating ideas to agencies taking on vital importance.

An ability to demonstrate that you have designed, implemented and fine-tuned L&D strategies will be a key asset for the would-be training director. This might not necessarily be at director level, although companies will clearly be looking for director material. An ability to report actions and findings and to work within the board structure effectively.
