When considering your development, don’t restrict yourself to classroom based learning. 

  • Research shows that typically only 10% of development optimally comes from classroom and e-learning.
  • 20% comes from learning and developing with and through others from shadowing, mentoring, coaching, personal networks and other collaborative and co-operative activities. Encouragement and feedback are prime benefits of this valuable learning approach.
  • The final 70% comes from on the job experience, that is learning and developing through day-to-day tasks, challenges and practice. This is the most beneficial area of development because it helps you to discover and refine your job-related skills, make decisions, address challenges and interact with people on the job. On the job development also provides an opportunity to learn from success and mistakes as well as receive immediate feedback on your performance.
  • The NHSBT Digital Learning hub offers access to on-line resources that will support your learning

So, when thinking about your development consider all aspects of the 70:20:10 approach and identify the area that is the most effective to support your development.
