Valuing Learning from Beyond the Organisation Essential Insights
Explore and facilitate an approach to learning and development that values learning experiences gained from outside the workplace
Free for CIPD members and Core Learning Subscribers.
People professionals looking to specialise in workplace learning and development (L&D) must embrace different learning approaches to develop capability. Forward-thinking organisations advocate that learning is not only objective-driven: it can, and does, happen outside the organisation and employees often have valuable learnings gained from external sources. This evidence-based course introduces the approach to L&D that acknowledges and values these skills, knowledge and behaviours. Those who ‘bring their whole selves to work’ (able to be authentic and share unique perspectives) can then use these experiences – and future experiences – in their role to make an impact.
Aimed at professionals new to the topic, it explains the concept of embracing learning outside work and work life to aid and enhance an organisation’s learning strategy and culture. Attendees will gain the tools to facilitate the approach and feel equipped to champion opportunities for individuals and the organisation.
All CIPD Learning courses will automatically provide you with access to the CIPD Learning Hub, our online learning platform, for 24 months.
