Workplace Learning and Development

The university supports job advancement and continual learning for staff by providing access to a variety of staff training courses, continuing education activities, and academic programs. Each staff member shares in the responsibility for identifying job-specific training needs and available resources to support achievement of performance goals.

Workplace Learning & Development (WLD) is a professional development resource for all GW employees. WLD focuses on team and individual development; just-in-time learning and performance support; facilitating learning among employees; and executive and management development. WLD supports leadership at all levels, connects staff to university training offerings, and provides self-guided learning opportunities, including opportunities and tools to help employees learn on the job.

Staff members are encouraged to explore and utilize tuition remission, where applicable and allowable, for GW’s credit and non-credit programs, certificate programs as well as degree programs. [email protected] - Learning is another learning portal that is available to university staff members interested increasing or honing skills.

Staff members should work actively with managers to identify resources, plan a skill-building or career development program, and coordinate class attendance at times that do not conflict with the operational schedule of the work unit.
