Bachelor of Training and Development

The term 'Training and Development' describes the intersection of adult education and training with individual and organizational development. As such, this hybrid-type course provides cross-disciplinary expertise in the fields of education and business. Emphasis is placed on providing workplace trainers and developers with new tools to enhance professional development with increased managerial responsibilities.

The UNE Bachelor of Training and Development has been designed to provide the cross-disciplinary expertise required by workplace trainers and supervisors with system-level responsibilities or who are seeking to move into such positions. This course recognizes your professional background by giving you full credit for your previous studies, training and work experience and helping you take the step into tertiary education. The UNE Bachelor of Training and Development aims to link training concerns with leadership and organizational development and to facilitate the effectiveness of individual trainers in a workplace environment. It also includes an advanced academic skills unit that helps students refine their writing and information literacy skills for tertiary study.
