Our team
At Allens we think that learning is far more than formal classroom development – it's a complex and interrelated experience incorporating culture, beliefs, mindset, behaviour, habits, experience and skills – often taking place on the go and in everyday situations. The Learning & Development team at Allens partners with internal and external experts to experiment with new ways to drive change at a personal, team and organisational level. We use Human Centred Design to empathise with our learners, design thinking concepts to test and learn, agile approaches to be responsive, and a deep understanding of adult learning to build cutting edge solutions.
