Forward Features 2018

We don’t operate a standard forward features list of monthly themes because we are online-only. If an article is fresh, insightful and interesting to our audience, we will post it.

As a site for learning & training professionals, we are mostly concerned with how we can help L&D prepare for the future of work and how L&D can solve modern workplace challenges.

Basically, if an article can help L&D do their jobs better with insight and advice, we’re interested.

We have some regular content series which you might be interested in contributing to, which include:

  • A Day in the Life of - L&D practitioners explain how they approach their work & daily challenges
  • For/Against - 2 industry experts give their opposing views on a key issue, eg. learning styles, millennials, appraisals...
  • L&D After Dark - Anonymous submissions for annoyances or criticisms of the L&D industry 
  • Academics Corner - Academics write about their latest research and its implications for HR and L&D professionals

We will also be focusing on the following key topics throughout the year:

  • January: Wellbeing in the workplace (Mental health training for line managers)
  • February: Employee benefits (Educating pensions to younger employees)
  • March: Apprenticeship levy AND HR technology (AI and learning) 
  • April: Diversity and inclusion (unconscious biases, for/against quotas, dealing with discrimination, LGBT, disability, gender, age, BAME, neurodiversity)
