Learning at work week this week has seen organisations up and down the country engaging in a variety of activities to demonstrate their commitment to learning. Many have taken the opportunity to run a host of workshops throughout the week, supporting employees to focus on learning activities and holding awards ceremonies for learning stars. The topics included haven’t just been work-based. From Zumba to wine tasting, karate to knitting, we’ve seen it all!
In an interview last week, Julia Wright, National Director for the Campaign for Learning told us that Learning at Work week is ‘really to promote a culture of learning at work’. It’s got me thinking about what we should be doing all year around beyond this dedicated week to promote this culture. Lunch and learn sessions, collaborating with marketing to communicate learning opportunities, sharing useful learning resources; there’s lots we could be doing as part of our business as usual all year around.
