The development options and programs offered by the University recognise that learning is an ongoing process, requiring formal components supported by relationships, coaching, feedback, collaboration, knowledge sharing, on the job activities, stretch assignments and regular reflection.
Learning is part of our culture, to give our people every opportunity to reach their potential and maximise their careers at ACU.
The 70:20:10 Model for Learning is a guideline for understanding how people learn, and the approach is based on research. Toolkits are being developed for each of the competencies of the Capability Development Framework, as well as specific toolkits for New Starters and Management & Leadership.
A key role of the supervisor is to support the learning and development of staff. Learning is an ongoing process which takes place not just within a classroom or formal learning event. Having regular opportunities to practice skills on the job promotes retention and enhances learning. Learners change their behaviour when supervisors provide continuous reinforcement before, during and after a program.
