Learning transfer is the process of transfer of skills, behaviours, attitudes and any other learning from a classroom or formal learning event to the workplace. It is about how well the learner ‘operationalises’ their learning once they are back in their normal environment. If the content of the learning has been well targeted, then this should lead to an increase in workplace performance. Learning transfer tends to be more dependent on the conditions in the workplace than the quality of the learning/training event.
