In this edition of Need to know.com, we continue to explore the future of work and how DeakinCo. supports and empowers learning and development (L&D) practioners become performance partners for their organisation.

DeakinCo.’s vision is to equip workforces with the skills they need in an everchanging environment. The sweeping changes to the way we work are creating opportunities for organisations, and their L&D professionals, to fundamentally adapt their approach to skill development.

Earlier this year we released our Enabling future of work: Skills and strategies for learning and development report. The report has resonated with many of our readers and they agree that L&D needs to be the performance partner that enables learning within their organisation. Many believe that building a culture of continuous learning needs to be focus and we believe L&D professionals have an incredible opportunity to be the organisations role models for agile and continuous learning within their organisation.

We thank everyone who has the read report and we hope that it has contributed to your thinking and practice within your organisation. We are passionate about this topic and welcome any additional insights, experiences or, indeed, challenges to our current thinking.

Our other focus, has been on working with other education providers who would like to enter or accelerate their participation in the micro-credential market. Our licencing model enables our partners to go to market rapidly with an established and tested micro-credential offer. Deakin University with DeakinCo. sees an opportunity to work as an industry to develop a mutually recognised currency for capabilities.
Best regards
