Learning at Work Week 2016
Next week from 16th to 22nd May 2016 is Learning at Work Week, this is an annual awareness campaign organised by the Campaign for Learning since 1999 . The campaign aims to spotlight the importance and benefits of learning and development for staff and organisations. It is out to promote an inclusive approach to opportunities for all to learn, upskill and develop to lead highly rewarding careers.
At CDSM, we are participating in Learning at Work Week and we are encouraging staff members to look at what learning and development opportunities they have been undertaking and how this will benefit them and the company. As an award-winning digital learning services agency, learning and development opportunities are at the core of CDSM’s pedagogy, which is to create and deliver industry-leading education technology products and services for the private and public sectors .
Training and development opportunities are available to all staff at CDSM, ranging from apprenticeships and level 4-7 leadership and management qualifications with the Institute of Leadership and Management to PRINCE 2 project management training. A learning and development opportunity does not essentially have to be formal training or lead to a qualification. They can range from practical experience in obtaining a new skill, working with a client at their premises or developing product knowledge ready for a launch. Each member of staff has regular 1-to-1s and performance development reviews with their line manager to create a plan of action to allow them to capitalise on the learning and development opportunities available to them.
Each day next week, a new post will appear on the CDSM blog interviewing a member of the CDSM family on a current learning and development opportunity. Regular updates will also be posted on social media; you might even catch a blog in your email inbox!
The first blog post will be live at 9AM on Monday morning.
