The Campaign for Learning is gearing up for next month's National Learning at Work Day.
Linda Siegle, joint chief executive of Campaign for Learning, urged everyone to get involved in the 24 May event. "Even if you think learning isn't for you or you've been put off by bad experiences of past training courses and school classrooms, the mixture of fun and business related learning that's promoted in workplaces on the day reveals the lighter side to learning, helping to build confidence and uncover true potential,” she said.
"And if you find yourself bitten by the learning bug or having identified skills you need or qualifications you'd like to have, you'll find a whole world of opportunities and possibilities for further learning open up at work and in your local area."
The Campaign for Learning is encouraging organisations to use the day, and the whole week, to focus on identifying, developing and reviewing employee skills to help achieve business benefits and individual career success.
