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.
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.

The Norfolk town of Great Yarmouth is almost the UK’s most eastern place, pipped to the post by a few metres by Lowestoft 8 miles (13 km) to the south. Norwich, Norfolk’s county town, is 18 miles (30 km) to the west. Great Yarmouth has a well earned reputation for being a holiday resort, and it is one of the most popular in the UK. However its hinterland is actually rather industrialised, and is heavily involved with the gas and oil rig industries. Just offshore there is a large wind farm, with 30 turbines harvesting the North Sea breezes.
Like several towns on the North Sea, Great Yarmouth was unfortunate enough to be bombed in both world wars, by Zeppelins, the German navy and the Luftwaffe. Both times the town rebuild to carry on its tourism industries in peacetime. Great Yarmouth has managed to retain its tourism industry where many others have failed, perhaps because it is a diverse town as far as industry is concerned, and the locals use the same amenities as the tourists. Whatever the reason, its 50,000 population, made up of a mix of families and retirees, is reasonably affluent and the town is steadily growing.
The oil rig plant and the gas industry themselves can be great indicators that Training Director work could become available in Great Yarmouth, but the town’s population and its attractiveness to tourists also create an environment where the town has complex logistical needs to be met. With Norwich nearby, opportunities could arise just down the road, too.
