Learning at Work Week is an annual awareness campaign organised by the Campaign for Learning since 1999. You can take part as a learner, company, or learning provider. Last year, thousands of organisations took part including large corporations, SMEs, public sector organisations and government departments.
Learning at Work Week aims to put the spotlight on the importance and benefits of learning and development. It promotes an inclusive approach and supports the extension of opportunities to learn to all employees, especially those who may not currently participate for reasons that may range from personal barriers to historic organisational structures that focus development on particular staff.
Just some of the benefits of taking part:
+ Changing attitudes to learning and work
+ Greater awareness of opportunities to learn
+ Greater employee engagement
+ Informing business & learning and development strategies
+ Stimulating and collating feedback, ideas and perspectives that inform future planning
+ Opportunities to discover and recognise internal talent
+ Greater recognition and valuing of different ways to learn in the workplace
+ Highlighting business priorities, agendas and addressing change
+ Addressing workplace silos and bridging information gaps
Learning at Work Week offers an opportunity to run a branded learning campaign in your workplace linked to a national event. Each year, thousands of organisations take part in the Week and run vibrant campaigns and activities which engage employees across their businesses in development and promote positive messages about learning. Learning at Work Week is not prescriptive in terms of what your company should do and how you should mark it, but provides a clear framework and ideas for planning events and activities that fit your particular context and goals and is explicitly linked to your business objectives and/or opportunities and the needs of your employees. This ensures that your Learning at Work Week activities can be built on after the event.
