Learning and Development

Who is it for?

All MOD Civilians


What do I get?

MOD aims to provide its civilian staff with 5 days a year of Learning and Development. This time can be spent using a combination activities such as on the job learning, training courses and other informal opportunities such as mentoring. This blended approach is referred to as the 70:20:10 model. This model recommends that individuals gain 70% of their learning from job-related experiences, 20% from social interactions with others, and 10% from formal learning events. Far from being a rigid formula, the model is best used as a guideline when planning development needs.




Next Steps
