Every year, the Campaign for Learning sets a theme for Learning at Work Day to highlight an important aspect or aspects of workplace learning and development. We then suggest ideas and approaches and produce downloadable graphics and promotional posters linked to the theme. As an organiser, you can use this theme or choose another theme if this works better for your particular context and objectives for the day.
This year's theme is 'Many Ways to Learn'.
It focuses on:
how learning and development can happen in various ways and the benefits to businesses and managers of maximising the opportunities for employees to learn by cultivating and supporting different types of learning at work
the benefits of supporting employees to become more self-directed and able to manage their own learning, so they recognise and value the range of ways they can learn at work, from classroom-based training to web research
the impact on employees’ motivation when they understand their own learning preferences and how they can develop their learning skills
There will also be a focus on:
Line managers in recognition of the increasingly important role they have in supporting staff to learn and develop, and how they can do this successfully
Apprentices in reference to the expansive apprenticeship framework, which promotes practices that offer apprentices a richer understanding and experience of the business and access to wider learning opportunities
