Join us for national Learning at Work Week

We are thrilled to announce that we are an official national activity partner of the biggest festival of workplace learning in the UK, Learning at Work Week. Organised by Campaign for Learning, this year’s theme is Made for Learning, which focuses on our human capacity to learn. It’s based on raising awareness around how we can be great lifelong learners and the importance of connection and community for developing empowered people and dynamic organisations.

As the Sector Skills Council for Health for nearly 20 years’, it has always been, and will continue to be our main goal to provide guidance, support, learning tools and resources to our healthcare workforce. We believe information sharing is critical, and we are delighted to be one of the UK’s most trusted sources for health-related guidance to help our healthcare teams develop better skills, better jobs, and better health.

Developing a resilient workforce research – take part in the national survey

Working with our in-house Research Team, we have recently launched a national survey to support evidence-based, people-centred development of future workforces.

This vital research looks to capture cross-sector skills gaps, the impact on learning due to Covid-19, ongoing training needs, flexible and remote working, equality, diversity, and inclusion at work, as well as the organisational and people development requirements to support an ever-increasing complex workforce.

Please share your valuable experience with us and make sure your voice is heard.

SFJ Awards recognising the power of virtual learning

Our sister organisation, and leading Awarding Organisation for the UK’s Justice, Security and Health sectors, SFJ Awards, are championing employers throughout Learning at Work Week, as a key sponsor for the annual Impact Awards.

The ‘Connecting People through Virtual Learning’ Award will recognise the importance of developing an accessible and meaningful virtual learning offer for staff to grow skills and resilience as we begin a slow recovery out of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Employers can complete a nomination form to tell the judges who they’ve used virtual technology and online learning solutions to connect their workforce, and improve learning outcomes for all, throughout Learning at Work Week.

Learning at work has become learning at home

As the world has shifted to accommodate anything from social distancing to total quarantine, learning has moved from classrooms and labs to the isolation of the home environment. This has been made possible by robust and timely eLearning modules and learning management systems, ensuring staff are up-to-date, highly skilled, and prepared for a fast-changing work environment.

Delivering essential training and education in a completely remote way has overcome huge concerns over safety – both the safety of the staff in a time when face-to-face contact was fraught with danger, and the safety of the public who could be adversely affected by under-skilled and under-prepared staff, or staff absence.

Supporting healthcare learning and development

We’re committed to helping health organisations develop their people to reach their full potential. Our best-in-class online learning solutions offer intuitive, customisable and compliant tools, and high standards of quality assurance
