What does an Instructional Designer do?

An Instructional Designer develops learning programs for workplace training or vocational education. You might create training programs for your own company or develop programs for a registered training organisation. Instructional Designers might work with industry leaders or management to determine training needs and create learning materials to meet those needs.

Instructional Designers need strong attention to detail and should be able to multitask. You’ll work with students, trainers and industry representatives so it’s important that you can communicate well. Instructional Designers should be passionate about education and able to understand training needs. Time management is important and you should be able to complete a range of administrative tasks.
