Under the working title 'The Great Training Robbery?' the Conference opened with a frank exposé of the failings of much of training and learning with all too frequent low achievement and success rates. Delegates were invited to consider their own role, commitment and the concerted effort needed to do something about low success rates. An innovative approach was adopted based on interactive voting devices to determine delegate response and the conference view of the opening propositions and the priorities for change.

Only 51% of delegates said they evaluate for results several months post-learning intervention, but a pleasing 89% stated they would go out of their way to look at the issues raised which apply to their own learning services.

To help address the issue of 'what can we do about it?' the conference then concentrated on the four themes of performance management, pedagogy, evaluation and marketing, as positive steps to support effective learning outcomes.

Speaking on the findings, David Wolfson, Chairman of the British Learning Association said, "These are worrying figures from the country’s leading learning professionals. If they really do reflect training in the UK, then we have to think long and hard about how to make the changes that training is meant to give. It suggests that we have to do more – much more – to ensure that learning interventions really make a difference. That’s part of our role at the BLA.”

Speakers included 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

The conference brought together professionals in all sectors of learning, development, education and training who were 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.
