Learning and Development Specialist Group

The BCS Learning and Development Specialist Group is a volunteer member group of BCS The Chartered Institute for IT that brings together learning and education practitioners working in the fields of IT and Computing, whether they be in industry, compulsory education, further education or academia.

The group identifies a number of objectives, and takes as its constitution the BCS rules governing member groups.

The group is led by an elected committee of members who plan a wide range of events, that are open to BCS members and non-members alike. Most of the group’s events are free to attend, and many are hosted online and recorded for the benefit of those unable to attend in person.

The group regularly contributes articles to ITNOW, the magazine of BCS, and to online discussion forums such as the BCS L&D Specialist Group LinkedIn Forum.
