Learning at Work Day 2000


The Campaign for Learning has marked Thursday, May 25th as this year’s Learning at Work Day. As part of Adult Learners Week, the aim of the Day is to create thousands of learning opportunities, both formal and informal, in workplaces all over the country.

The Day has the support of Dame Judi Dench: 'I am happy to support Learning at Work Day for the Campaign for Learning. I’m certain that, above all, learning should be fun. I think that learning at work is something that we probably think we all do, but sometimes we get stuck in a rut and, without realising it, forget to learn something new and different. It’s good to ask questions, be inquisitive and learn things as we go about our daily business.'

Over a thousand organisations got involved last year and the Campaign for Learning will be working to build on this and encourage participation from as wide a range of organisations as possible.

Last year the Campaign for Learning asked Chief Executives to take part in 'Back to the Floor' style job swaps. This year, the scenario is a little different - Chief Executives are being asked to let junior employees shadow them for a day, allowing them to discover whether it really is 'tough at the top'.

The job swapping part of Learning at Work Day isn’t restricted to CEO’s, however. A recent survey by found that 84% of people would like to swap jobs for the day and in response to the findings they have joined forces with the Campaign for Learning to create a National Job Swap Day as part of the Learning at Work Day programme on May 25th.
