As there's no set or prescribed route into or through a career in L&D, no two career journeys are the same.

This week on the Mind Tools L&D podcast, Gemma and her guests, Zahra Clarke-Johnney, Digital L&D Manager at English Institute of Sport, and Mind Tools' very own Sami Chan and Nahdia Khan, consider how to best plot one's way in, and through our evolving profession.

We discuss:

  • routes into the profession
  • where to find support
  • what the profession might hold in the future.
