Partnership to research learning transfer practices
The Kite Foundation has partnered with TJ to support new research regarding learning transfer practices among training practitioners in the United Kingdom.
It is estimated that in excess of £420 billion is spent annually on training, yet less than 20 per cent of what is learnt in the classroom is transferred and applied to the workplace. Known as 'the learning transfer problem', it is a very real issue facing industry professionals and thought leaders.
The survey follows the first survey on the topic, conducted in 2010, and will compare how learning transfer has affected business, identify any shifts in learning transfer practice since 2010, and examine whether the recession has had an ongoing impact.
The survey, which will take respondents ten minutes to complete online, will run until 23rd February 2013. All respondents will also receive a copy of the report when it is published in April 2013.
Kite Foundation founder, Robert Terry, said: "We are looking forward to seeing if there has been a noticeable shift since 2010 on the subject of learning transfer in business. The subject is one close to my heart and often provokes lively debate amongst HR and training professionals. I would encourage readers of Training Journal to take part and contribute to this unique research project."
