What is Learning at Work Week?
Learning at Work Week is an annual event to highlight the importance and benefits of learning and development at work. It’s a great opportunity to launch eLearning, highlight a new course, try our free resources, raise the profile of learning and development in your organisation, and generally get people engaged with what you’re doing.
When is it?
13th – 19th May 2019.
It also coincides with Mental Health Awareness week so it’s a real chance to focus on wellbeing too. According to a CIPD research report, mental ill health is on the increase and is now the leading cause of workplace absence in the UK.
We’ve teamed up with wellbeing expert Liggy Webb to give away some bite sized books on the topic of mental health, to help support your workforce’s wellness.
What resources are there to help?
We have lots of goodies for you for the week, including:
- Free eLearning: One week’s free access to our extensive library of eLearning courses. Some topics include Health & Safety, GDPR and Workplace Wellbeing
- A free mini book: A free Mental Health bite sized book (for the first 100 to register)
- Free video resources: A playlist of videos to share within your organisation to raise awareness of mental wellbeing. The videos come from the Clear Lessons Foundation, a FREE resource for charities 365 days of the year.
- Help & support: Resources and advice to support you
