In addition to learning more about human resourses and accounting she's also found herself in a new leadership position.

The above sentence was online.Now why does it have "to learning"? I don't understand why there is "ing" with learn.


I would write it like "in addition to learn more about......"

Please help. Thank you

In addition to learning more about human resources ...

the 'to' belongs with 'in addition' not with what follows.

"in addition to" + something (noun/noun phrase/gerund phrase)

"learning" here is a gerund and is part of the phrase -

"learning more about human resources"

A gerund is a verb + ing that is used like a noun.
