Salary for a training manager in Scotland

Also known as…


Learning and development manager and training and development manager are also common job titles, especially within the public sector. On the whole, the roles will be very similar.



What is involved…


The size of the employer and the nature of the business will dictate how varied the role is, and the level of responsibility you have. Essentially though, you will be responsible for the co-ordination of the organisation’s training, including the development, management and delivery of all the staff’s training needs.



What you need to succeed…


At least three years’ training and development experience is normally essential, as are impeccable communication and interpersonal skills. If you have worked in an HR department previously it will be to your advantage, but this is not always necessary.


Prospects are…


Very good. Once you have gained the necessary experience, there should be opportunities to move into senior management positions – not just within training, but also in a more generic HR capacity. If you want to work outside an office environment in the future, you may be able to lecture on training, or even move into the more lucrative field of consultancy work.
