Totara includes a distinct functionality to identify and track the “positions” of learners. A position is essentially where a person works and what they do. This information can be very useful when tailoring a learning pathway for the individual and when preparing reports. In Totara, a learner can be assigned three types of positions – primary, secondary and aspirational. The primary position is used to develop the learning pathway and is included in reporting; secondary and aspirational positions are not used with this functionality.
