'Highly Commended'

for its Learning at Work Week 2019 Activities

Advice Skills Academy has again this year been awarded ‘Highly Commended’ for its Learning at Work Week activities which took place during 13 to 19 May 2019.


Advice Skills Academy – End of Round 1

The first round of the Advice Skills Academy project has now finished. The project team have done an end of project evaluation report, and the summary is available here for you to have a look at.

During the project we overachieved on some of our targets including:

  • Signing up 558 ASA participants (target 540)
  • Achieving 75% of ASA participants being female (target 50%)
  • 231 ASA participants over 50 (target 108)
  • We almost achieved our target of 120 participants gaining a Level 3 accredited unit qualification – with a massive 111 participants completing an accredited unit in things like Leading and Motivating a Team, Understanding Leadership, Managing Projects, Mentoring, Developing Yourself and Others, and Providing Initial Legal Advice.

The partnership are still waiting for a decision on their bid for a second round of ASA – and we’ll update you as soon as we get any news.

In the meantime, you can still use the ASA website to look at the newsletters, the Bitesize learning, and the Learning Directory.
