As well as this week being Mental Health Awareness Week, it is also Learning at Work Week, which draws attention to the importance and benefits of learning and training in the workplace.
Learning at Work Week, which takes place every May, is organised by the Campaign for Learning, and this year the theme is ‘Shaping the Future’.
All companies and organisations are invited to mark Learning at Work Week. All types and sizes of organisation take part including multinationals, SMEs, public sector organisations and government departments.
What do companies do for Learning at Work Week?
Many companies use the Week as a catalyst for change providing an opportunity to ‘rebrand’ or refresh learning and development, reinforcing the organisation’s commitment to staff development and celebrating learning that takes place all year round.
The activities that companies run range from non-work related and interest-led activities through award ceremonies to business focused sessions. Learning at Work Week offers an opportunity to promote and deliver these in a way that is fresh, exciting and engaging – from panel sessions to creative workshops.
You can register for free and access online resources, advice, guidance and printed resources. For further information visit the Campaign for Learning website.
