Getting the most from Learning at Work 2021
A unique annual event to make the most of all the ways to learn at work.
Learning at Work Week 2021 aims to celebrate lifelong learning at work and build learning cultures everywhere. The theme this year is ‘Made for Learning’. It encourages us to focus on our human capacity to learn, how we can be great lifelong learners and the importance of connection and community.
The Government Skills and Curriculum Unit has worked with colleagues across government and our external partners to share a selection of ideas to help you get the most from this year’s Learning at Work Week and to become a lifelong learner:
- These handy guides for learners and managers provide a selection of suggestions on what to do during Learning at Work Week and beyond
- This guide to Coffee Roulette shows how this great tool can help people connect, and develop by swapping ideas and learning from others
- Take a look at Civil Service blogs during Learning at Work Week and you’ll see blogs from Pamela Dow, Executive Director of the Government Skills and Curriculum Unit with external partners from our Learning Frameworks on why lockdown is a wakeup call for better virtual training and how you can build your skills, nous and networks in 5 ways
- Read these fascinating articles on why we never really stop learning; and learning in the flow of work.
- Check out the full range of training and services available through the Learning Frameworks in the Overview of offer.
Listen while you learn
As COVID-19 means that many of us are still working remotely, the Learning at Work week team have curated a collaborative playlist, ‘Sounds of Learning’ to bring everybody together during Learning at Work Week. The playlist is currently live on Spotify.
Hopefully you are able to take some time during Learning at Work Week to start to become a lifelong learner, if you aren’t already!
