The Diploma of Training Design and Development is delivered by Newbery Consulting using a blended learning model combining e-learning with monthly face to face workshops in the Sydney CBD and direct engagement over the phone and webinar. Assessment will involve project work and technical discussion based on project outputs.


Participants will complete assessment activities throughout the course. These assessment activities are primarily project based activities as the participant navigates their way through the analyse, design and development process. Project outputs the participant is required to produce include such products as reports on training needs, units of competency, learning and assessment strategies, assessment resources, learning resources, to name just a few. All of these products will relate specifically to the participants own development project and will provide valuable input to their own workplace.
