Get planning for learning at work week

Learning at Work Week led by Campaign for Learning is a fantastic initiative to promote continuous learning and development within the workplace.

Planning ahead allows you to organise activities, workshops, and resources that cater to the needs and interests of your team members. Here are some steps you might consider for planning:

  1. Set clear goals: Determine what you want to achieve during Learning at Work Week. Are you focusing on upskilling specific job-related competencies, fostering a culture of continuous learning, or introducing new learning initiatives?
  2. Survey employees: Understand the learning interests and preferences of your employees through surveys or informal discussions. This will help you tailor the activities to their needs and preferences.
  3. Organise workshops and training sessions: Plan a series of workshops, training sessions, or lunch-and-learns covering a variety of topics relevant to your team’s roles and interests. You can invite internal experts, external trainers, or even facilitate peer-to-peer learning sessions.
  4. Leverage online resources: Explore online learning platforms or resources that employees can access at their convenience. This could include subscriptions to platforms like LinkedIn Learning or offering access to industry-specific resources.
  5. Promote peer learning: Encourage knowledge sharing among team members by organising peer-led sessions or setting up mentorship programmes. Peer learning can be a powerful way for employees to learn from each other’s experiences and expertise.
  6. Recognition and rewards: Recognise and celebrate employees’ participation and achievements during Learning at Work Week. This could include certificates of completion, shout-outs in team meetings, or small rewards for active participation.
  7. Evaluate and gather feedback: After the event, gather feedback from employees to understand what worked well and areas for improvement. Use this feedback to inform future learning initiatives and continue to foster a culture of learning in the workplace.

Remember, Learning at Work Week is not just about one week of activities but about creating a culture of continuous learning that extends beyond the event itself.
