The ritual of just making sure the hours were completed, more figured out the need to embrace lifelong learning. Now the Coronavirus has forced a sea change in all professional learning and development, with technology playing a pivotal role.

What seems to become the norm now is that with virtual professional learning is that learning and development in all forms are more accessible. What is sure is that there is now a level playing field with fewer intermediaries. So, to progress look at what you need for you to progress first, then add your employer in that.
