Whether it's a 10 minute session, a lunchtime activity, an afternoon of learning or more – use our steps and idea generator below to create an impact!

Step 1: Sign up to the newsletter (and get specials offers for learning straight to your inbox)

Our regular newsletters will give you ideas and inspiration plus special offers with free learning opportunities from partners. If you don’t have time to run your own sessions, check out offers from us and our national activity partners. To get these straight to your inbox, sign up for our newsletter.

Step 2: Uncover learning with this year’s theme

Use our national theme 'Learning Uncovered' to create your Learning at Work Week activities. It has three strands:

  • Uncover learning potential – support colleagues to access and benefit from learning
  • Uncover hidden powers – encouraging colleagues to share what they know and can do
  • Uncover new dimensions – share new insights, new trends, new tools and approaches

Step 3: Need + theme = activity!

Try this simple idea generator below to build activities with impact. You can also download it here.

First, identify a need in your organisation, add a national theme strand and create an activity that reflects both. Shape them for different audiences in your workplace. Here are some examples.

Need + theme strand = activity
