FOCUS OF THE NZATD 2016 PRACTITIONER OF THE YEAR AWARD – Application submission date extended until September 13th
NZATD, in association with NZATD Education Trust, introduced the L&D 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, eLearning, facilitation; managing the learning and development function, etc.
The winning professional, in one or more of the following, will need to have:
- Demonstrated consistent excellence in their chosen speciality/specialties 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.
Entries should have been implemented within New Zealand or, if implemented overseas, must have been implemented by a New Zealand resident company or New Zealand division of an international company. Membership of NZATD is not required to place an entry in the awards.
