With Learning at Work and lifelong learning being at the foundation of everything we do at Prospect, we believe in championing skills development through all stages of our lives, whether this is at work or at home.
This month gives us the opportunity to do just that as we celebrate Learning at Work Week (LAWW) from 15-21 May 2023.This is an annual event to build learning cultures at work. It aims to put a spotlight on the importance and benefits of continual learning and development.
LAWW is led by the Campaign for Learning, who are asking employers to mark Learning at Work Week in their organizations, thinking about how they can plan activities and ideas to run creative, innovative, and inclusive LAWW campaigns and events.
We know learning doesn’t need to be just a formal development program, workshops or webinar. Learning comes in many different forms, whether the learning is at work or at home, these can be listening to podcasts, reading, taking time to reflect, reflection journals, shadowing someone at work, having conversations such as knowledge exchange, quizzes, problem-solving with others, etc.
In addition to LAWW campaigns, May also brings National Numeracy Day on 17 May, which is of significant importance within the workplace and an incredibly important event: Mental Health Awareness Week (15-21 May).
For 2023, the week aims to increase our understanding and awareness of anxiety, to equip people with information that can help prevent it from becoming a problem. Ensuring that health, resilience, and wellbeing are supported and spoken about within the workplace. Prospect has a credible record of helping organizations, their teams, and staff to look at how they can champion learning at the workplace, through innovative, supporting skills development and capability building through our train the trainer approaches, coaching and mentoring training, along with co-production with our commissioners, and their staff.
