Supporting Continous Independent Learning in the Workplace

Next public workshop runs: 15 January – 2 March 2018

In the modern workplace it is no longer enough for L&D to just organise and manage modern learning experiences, they also need to enable and support continuous independent learning. In this 7-week online workshop we look at how to help managers and individuals adopt a modern professional learning mindset as well as empower individuals to take responsibility for their own continuous self-improvement (in their existing job) and self-development (to prepare for the future).
