Leadership skills are 'a key priority'

Developing managerial and leadership skills is one of the biggest priorities for learning and development (L&D) teams in the next year, it has been revealed.

A study of 417 L&D professionals by Video Arts revealed that 61 per cent intend to provide leadership development training in the next 12 months, with other key priorities cited as teamwork, customer service and time management.

As for delivery, classroom training remains the most popular approach, with 90 per cent of organisations claiming to use this method, followed by 85 per cent using video clips.

However, mobile learning is beginning to make an emergence, with just over a tenth of firms using this method.

"Although the take-up is still relatively small, mobile learning is the fastest-growing medium for training. This reflects the interest in learning on-the-move, using handheld devices such as smartphones and tablets," said Martin Addison, chief executive of Video Arts.

Meanwhile, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation has suggested that firms need to encourage the uptake of IT skills.
