About Us

The Institute for Learning Professionals Australasia (ILP) is a leading industry body for learning and development (L&D) professionals in Australasia. We believe anyone who works with people to enhance their performance, capability or change behaviour are learning and development professionals.

ILP is committed to continue leading the learning evolution and to raise the benchmark 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.

ILP focuses on three core key areas to help L&D professionals:

  • Achieve success (with their career or business)
  • Build Capability
  • Connect with peers and clients

ILP currently represents over 4000 L&D professionals across Australia, New Zealand and other international areas, as well as the wider L&D community. We support a diverse range of L&D professionals, both independent and corporate as well as Registered Training Organisations.

ILP also partners with a range of associations to ensure ILP continues to be the best value industry body. It is important for us to make a positive impact, not just for our members, but also the wider community. This is the reason ILP contributes to the work of the B1G1 (Buy 1 Give 1) program.

We facilitate the growth and value of the learning and development industry and professionals for today and the future. In essence, we share your passion and desire to create a highly valued and respected learning and development experiences.
