Last year the Social Partnership Forum asked NHS Employers to work with the Department of Health, NHS Trade Unions, and Skills for Health to create a campaign promoting workplace learning.
The learn for life campaign produced on behalf of the Social Partnership Forum aims to increase awareness of workplace learning, create an increase in the amount of learning undertaken and boost the amount of support for the development of NHS staff. The campaign will improve the perception of workplace learning and ultimately increase the positive impact of learning on patient care.
Dean Royles, chief executive of the NHS Employers said: "NHS Employers welcomes the opportunity to work with our partners to deliver the Learning for Life Campaign. The NHS faces a number of challenges and here is just one way we can really make a difference for staff and for patients. Workplace learning clearly plays an important role in improving staff skills and experience, supports staff engagement and motivation and helps improve patient care. We know NHS employers and their trade union partners feel the same and hope they find the toolkit and supporting campaign material useful in helping them to embed a culture of learning at work in their organisation."
To help you deliver the learning for life campaign within your organisations, we have produced a pack of supporting materials which includes a toolkit and case studies, a business case summary and a guide to running your campaign.
Further information and the supporting materials are available on the Social Partnership forum website. You can also follow the campaign on Twitter using #NHSlearn4life.
