The aim of ADF-P-7 Learning is to detail Defence's philosophy of learning. The key elements of training, education, learning and development enable the learning organisation to meet current and future Defence capability requirements. While authoritative, this doctrine—like all other—requires judgement in application.


This publication is for use by planners and participants in, training, education, learning and development. This ensures our personnel meet current and future Defence capability outputs.


This publication provides philosophical level doctrine on the nature and purpose of learning within the Defence Groups and Services, and their associated people, functions and outputs to meet capability requirements. This publication is not intended to be the sole source of information on learning but rather a foundation to encourage further study and discussion.
