Learning at Work Week – Every day’s a school day!

‘Learn’– verb
To gain or acquire knowledge of or skill in (something) through study, experience, or being taught

What a tiny 5 letter word and yet it carries such a monumentally powerful meaning.

The human race has evolved through the power of ‘learning’ from day dot. It’s something we have all been doing from the moment we were born. Instinct leads the way, but beyond this everything we know and do in our everyday lives, even right now, has been ‘learned’.

Our ability and extent to increase our learning experiences can be drastically affected by circumstance and opportunity. While most of us might learn to ride a bike, read a book, swim, even navigate social media(!), some of us go on to build bridges and fly to the moon!

Our capacity to learn new things is limitless, when we get the chance to explore our capabilities.

“Learning is a process of active engagement with experience. It is what we do when we want to make sense of the world. It may involve the development or deepening of skills, knowledge, understanding, awareness, values, ideas and feelings, or an increase in the capacity to reflect. Effective learning leads to change, development and the desire to learn more.”

The Campaign for Learning’s approach

This year’s Learning at Work Week theme is ‘Shaping the Future’ and Embridge Consulting couldn’t be more attuned to the campaign for learning’s approach.

Learning beyond our school years has wide ranging and immeasurable benefits for our families and communities, our working lives, society and the economy, so having the opportunity to develop our understanding and knowledge within the workplace through structured learning is not only motivational and empowering, but essential.

Here at Embridge, we understand the importance of effective, engaging and stimulating learning. We provide blended learning programmes which allow people to learn in a variety of different modalities and in recognition of the challenges of needing to learn while working. These modalities range from ‘self-paced’ e-learning and mobile-learning, to virtual classrooms and face-to-face sessions.

We also embrace the digital transformation revolution, helping people to understand the significance of learning a new system and how they can adapt to the change.  These changes will only accelerate as organisations start to embrace and deploy more complex systems, AI, machine learning and robotics.

To help you and your organisation build a future where learning is the key
