Leverage the learning power at work

A group of people showing that learning is powerful

Since the 1001 days of January, 2024 seems to be racing by doesn’t it?

That’s why this week we’re looking ahead to May, because it’ll be here before you know it. And we’re looking to the week of 13th-19th May specifically, as that is when the UK have a National Learning at Work Week.

If you’re not familiar with the principle. every year, the Campaign for Learning support individuals and businesses nationally to focus on Learning for the week.

The idea is that you take their support and ideas to run specific activities designed to encourage learning and growth.

This year’s theme is Learning Power. Exploring how lifelong learning gives us power to change, grow and achieve our goals.

On the LAW websitethey share the 3 strands to this year’s theme along with ideas of what you could explore.

  • Power to grow
  • Power to connect
  • Power to engage

There are plenty of ideas to get you started – and hopefully, this nudge will mean you’ve got some thinking time if you want to really engage people this year.

Start thinking now about how a week focused on learning could make a difference to your company.

Perhaps by

  • increasing collaboration
  • giving a better business understanding
  • developing specific skillsets

Or whatever your key development focus is. And then tailor your business case, marketing and activities for Learning at Work Week to fit.

The Campaign for Learning also provide guidance (click here for their downloadable PDF) on how to do exactly this.

Remember that National Learning at Work Week not only helps you to raise awareness, boost people’s skills and benefits the business – it’s also a great way to raise your own credibility!
