Are you enthusiastic about learning in an organizational context? Do you know how to make acquiring new knowledge and skills both enjoyable and effective? In this role you are the Learning Expert for various curricula. You will be responsible for development, maintenance and deployment of multiple curricula and act as the learning business partner of your internal customers.

Job Mission

As part of the Technical Training Center (TTC), you will ensure stakeholder alignment on the development, and prioritization of the training development projects. Together with the Learning Operations Support Team these skills will be used to deliver blended learning programs which create high impact.

Job Description

For each of the assigned learning requests you will:

  • Identify the problem that the learning request is meant to solve. Talk to stakeholders and Subject Matter Experts, gather and assemble data and report back the findings. Develop a high-level scope.
  • Create a learning activity plan, based on company culture, existing materials, resources, budget, stakeholder and Subject Matter Expert (SME) involvement, vendor solutions and a host of other variables. Lock down and establish the scope, resources, timeframe, deliverables and success metrics, as well as a plan for maintaining the program (if needed) after the project concludes.
  • Implement the learning activity plan. Together with the course developer / SME build the instructional design, course development and learning activities. This also might include buying and implementing an off-the-shelf solution, setting up coaching activities or something as simple as creating a job aid.
  • Evaluate. Collect evaluations, assessments, conduct interviews or complete any other activities designed around measuring program success.
  • Ensure project closure. Provide any agreed-upon reporting, conduct a "lessons learned" as requested, transition the program into maintenance mode by facilitating a transfer to the Learning Operations Support Team (by means of setting up a Service Level Agreement), and close out the project.
