Training and Development Policy

Policy Guidance

The Training and Development Group designs policy and programs to ensure the Government's learning and development programs support strategic human capital investments.  We do this through:

  • Development of policy frameworks and flexibilities to establish Governmentwide systems to support effective learning and development programs in the agencies, particularly leadership development programs for managers and executives; and
  • Promulgation of flexible policies and strategic Governmentwide advice and guidance to implement systems to support employee learning and development.

We provide expert technical advice on complex Governmentwide HRD issues to assist Federal agencies to achieve their goals.  The following are links to various laws and policy documents.  Please check this site frequently for additions.
