Learning Connect

A space for learning and development professionals in government

What is Learning Connect?

Learning Connect is a new space for learning and development professionals across government. If you are an L&D professional, please join our mailing list for updates.

Our first initiative was a free online course which is still open for enrollment. Over 600 people have joined and the course has received great feedback. The course is interactive and includes sections on continuing professional development, accessibility, AI and digital platforms.

If you aren’t an L&D professional but still have an interest in L&D in government, please sign-up for Campus News instead. 

Learning Connect events

We are running a series of live workshops over spring 2024 which are free and open to anybody in UK government with a professional interest in L&D. Our first workshop is:

  • “Expanding Your Impact As An L&D Team”
  • Thursday, 29 February - 14.30-15.30
  • Fully online (MS Teams)
  • To book your place, register here

The workshop will be a chance to share insights with L&D colleagues on how to make an impact: both outwards, on learners who ‘don’t have the time’, and upwards, on senior leaders looking for results. Speakers include Lucy Philip (CEO of Purposefully Blended) - who specialises in leadership and mentoring for learning professionals - and Nicholas Smith, marketing and learner experience lead in MoJ. The event will be recorded for those who can’t make it.

Future workshop dates for your diary: 

  • 21 March - 11.00-12.00
  • 18 April - 11.00-12.00
  • 16 May - 11.00-12.00
