Organisations are increasingly recognising that a flexible approach to learning and development is imperative in delivering effective and sustainable learning. The 70:20:10 approach to Learning and Development is a powerful solution that suggests formal learning events are supported by learning from others and learning on the job.
As this model gains significant momentum in L&D circles both in Australia and internationally DeakinPrime has identified 50 organisations who subscribe to 70:20:10 and has conducted interviews with 24 of these.
This paper aims to demystify the 70:20:10 model by exploring how it is adopted and embedded across a range of organisations, from small enterprises to multinational corporations, including benefits and challenges and recommendations for effective practice.

Action learning is a learner-centred, team-based and action-oriented experiential learning process in which a small group of people (known as an ‘action learning set’) meet regularly to explore an opportunity or problem and to learn from their reflections on the actions they are taking to solve the problem.

Coaching was born from a number of fields of research and industries including humanistic psychology, counselling, adult education, organisational development and corporate training, consulting, mentoring, sports coaching and the rise of the human potential movement of the 1960’s. The ‘toolkit’ used by today’s coaches is made up of information, research, models and strategies that have been developed from these and various other professional services for over seventy years.

A reflective practice is one that provides the learner with a process, framework or support tools for learning enhancement through reflection. This reflection may be individual and private (such as when journaling), verbal and undertaken with one other person (such as in a ‘buddy’ role) or in a group (as in an action learning set). A reflective practice enables a new level of learning.
