National Learning at Work Week

 posted by | 13/05/2024


National Learning at Work Week (13 – 17 May) is a unique annual event that aims to build learning cultures at work. We hope this week highlights what we have available to colleagues for both personal and professional development.

The Organisational Development and Talent team are committed to supporting you in the development of your skills, behaviours and knowledge, with a wide range of tools to help you reach your full potential. In line with the Strategic Plan, we will support in transforming lives and communities.

Throughout National Learning at Work Week, we will be highlighting some of the opportunities we have available to our colleagues and guiding you on how to access these.

What opportunities are there to learn and engage?

MyView is a great place to start. Here you can find details of all face to face and virtual sessions we have available to colleagues. Remember – if the sessions are full or the dates are not convenient for you, then add yourself to the waiting list and we will contact you as soon as future dates are added.

Online Training is where you can find some of the mandatory training modules you will need to complete as well as a wide variety of personal development modules, including Career Pathways. We will shortly be launching a new look platform with some exciting bitesize courses, such as ‘Change Management’, ‘Building your Path to Professional Excellence’ and lots of new Wellbeing modules – due in July, so watch this space!

LinkedIn Learning is a useful tool for bitesize sessions on many topics, accessible via the OD portal, this will be available to Colleagues until the end of August 2024.

Admin Insights is a great opportunity to share best practice and allow self-development. It improves communication between departments and can complement your Career Pathway.

Pipeline Inclusive Mentoring Scheme is open to all colleagues looking to develop their careers, improve their working environment, expand their understanding, and take advantage of the mentoring opportunities offered. It is a valuable experience for mentor and mentee alike.

Learning is the ultimate tool, providing the opportunity and the means to change and enrich our lives through understanding, knowledge, and skills, and see the world in a different way.
