The top 3 reasons why you should join this community of practice:
- Connect: Meet others from across the APS who develop, deliver, procure, and evaluate learning and development initiatives.

The APS L&D Community of Practice meets three times a year in Canberra, and online through a GovTEAMS community.
At the most recent meeting in July, around 80 attendees participated in a workshop on thriving in the modern workplace. The workshop was facilitated by L&D Strategist Michelle Ockers and covered the future of work and the impact for L&D; essential skills for L&D professionals; and the professional development needs of participants.
Attendees had the opportunity to assess their capability and identify what skills they need to develop in order to thrive in L&D in the future.
