About Us


The Institute for Learning Professionals (ILP) is a leading industry body for learning and development (L&D) professionals in Australasia.

ILP has three core areas to support our members:

  • Our memberships offer unparalleled value, through a wide range of discounts, benefits, resources and services.
  • Our professional development opportunities are highly practical, with the focus being on helping L&D professionals improve the quality of learning for their attendees and outcomes for their clients.
  • Our Learning Hub  provides professional work spaces, resources, training and meeting rooms to aid our members to foster collaboration and connections.

We support a diverse range of L&D professionals, both independent and corporate as well as Registered Training Organisations.  ILP helps L&D professionals keep on top of their game through enhancing knowledge, techniques, sharing research and resources, whilst offering the opportunity to broaden their connections.

ILP is committed to continue leading the learning evolution to raise the benchmarks and standards in the L&D industry.  We believe the L&D sector can deliver so much more than is currently offered, through research, innovation, techniques and quality connections.

We genuinely care about our members and their individual needs.  It is important for us to make a positive impact, not just for our members, but also the wider community.
