The 7LTD Learning and Talent Development module is an optional level 7 Advanced Diploma in Human Resource Management module. It is worth 15 credits and includes 75 hours of guided learning.
Purpose and Aim of the Module
Learning and development are critical components of talent management. The unit is recognized and acknowledged as an important lever in achieving social, economic, and cultural goals. It also ensures that the goals of the government, organizations, and individuals are met.
The potential impact of learning and development in formulating and agreeing on aspirations, ambitions, and objectives is perhaps less recognized, but equally important. The role of learning and talent development in goal formulation and achievement is seen as a core foundation and component of this module.
The contextual nature of notions of talent, as well as their connections with national and organizational policy and strategies aimed at promoting similarly contextual notions of success, are also important.
As such, the purpose of this module is to foster a critical understanding of the potential and limitations of learning and talent development policies and strategies for formulating and achieving goals. This can be done at the national, organizational, group, and individual levels, allowing for the development of intellectual, social, professional, and personal skills necessary for effective performance in professional roles.
Finally, the module is intended to teach students how to critically reflect on theory and practice from an ethical and professional standpoint. Furthermore, it investigates the implications for professional practice while offering opportunities for applied learning and continuous professional development.
