What does a Learning Designer do?

A Learning Designer develops learning materials and training programs to meet the needs of various industries. You might develop training materials for your organisation or be employed by a specialty college or registered training organisation. Learning Designers may develop short courses or longer programs and may cater for individual learners or larger groups. You might prepare learning materials for use online or for in person training.

Learning Designers should be able to meet the needs of various learners and work with people from a range of backgrounds. It’s important that you communicate well and can liaise with students, trainers and industry leaders. Learning Designers should be organised and have excellent time management. You’ll often have to work on several projects at one time so multitasking skills are crucial.
