CHANGING LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT ROLES, COMPETENCE DEVELOPMENT AND PROFESSIONAL ETHICS begins with a discussion of changing role expectations and the spectrum of L&D roles found in organisations. 


The authors then discuss the competencies of L&D professionals and how these can be developed. They give particular focus to the concept of continuous professional development (CPD) and then focus on the nature of professionalism, ethics and the L&D practitioner. 


The ebook concludes by outlining different approaches to making decisions about ethical dilemmas in L&D.
