Creating a learning culture
Learning should occur naturally and be something we should all strive for every day. Similar to the 'growth mindset', in which a person focuses their energies to stretching their abilities through application and resilience, creating a learning culture shifts mindsets to one in which employees continue to develop themselves and others through continued sharing, helping and learning.
People learn from experience, from mistakes and from peers. They remember the information that is relevant to them and that resonates with them. So, when we talk about ‘creating a culture', we need to remember that not all employees are used to self-directed learning and that learning should be relevant, timely, feel natural and ideally be in the flow of work.
Learning can be a motivating experience and a source of continuous performance improvement, provided the learners recognise the purpose of the learning, that it feels relevant to them, and is contextualised. That's where learning and engagement come together and why creating a holistic learning experience for the workforce, aligned to the goals of the business is key to creating a true learning culture.
To get the best from your business you need to invest in your people. Companies who do this will see improvements in a number of areas including:
- Recruitment and Retention
- Improved Health and Wellbeing
- Reduced Absence
- Higher performance levels
A training programme allows you to strengthen the skills that each employee needs to improve. A development programme brings all employees to a higher level so they all have similar skills and knowledge.
Our courses have been developed to offer you a flexible approach as to how you may look to train your employees.
Throughout the year we run a number of programmes that are accessible for all to participate in allowing for a wide mix of knowledge and skills to be shared between delegates. This means for smaller organisations, you are able to send 1 (or more!) of your employees when you are unable to run a programme on-site. This enables you to have access to high quality courses and gives your employees the opportunity to get to meet other people in similar positions enabling knowledge sharing and an excellent opportunity for networking.

The capacity to learn is a gift
The ability to learn is a skill
The willingness to learn is a choice
