NZATD, in association with NZATD Education Trust, introduced the Learning and Development Practitioner award to recognise excellence among individuals actively engaged in the Learning and Development profession.  Rather than focus on particular skills e.g. facilitation, it seeks to acknowledge that individuals may exhibit excellence within the profession through a range of expertise that may span a range of different learning disciplines, for example (but not limited to) needs analysis, instructional design, assessment and evaluation, e-learning, facilitation; managing the learning and development function, etc.

The winning professional needs to, in one or more of the following, have:

  • Demonstrated consistent excellence in their chosen speciality/ies over a number of years,  and / or
  • Made an outstanding contribution to the profession over a number of years, and / or
  • Achieved something truly outstanding in the learning and development field within the past two years.
