Welcome to the May ASA Update
This month we’ve got information on Learning at Work Week, ASA training, bitesize learning on free quizzes like how healthy your workplace is, and free online Bitesize books, such as Positive Mindset.
Monday 13th to Sunday 19th May 2019
It’s Learning at Work Week in May.
Learning at Work Week is an annual celebration of the importance and benefits of learning and development in work.
This year’s theme is ‘Shaping the future’, but for Advice Skills Academy we’re calling it ‘Shaping your future’ as we encourage people to think about what learning and development will help you shape your future, as well as taking time to do some short learning during the week.
Advice Skills Training
We are currently arranging NEW training to be delivered June/July in:
- Deaf and Disability Awareness
- Gambling Awareness
As soon as we’ve got dates for these, we’ll email you all to let you know.
Delivery of our accredited training is ongoing during May to June – places are now fully booked for these sessions.
This free short quiz on ‘how healthy your workplace is’ has 12 questions on things like having someone you can raise issues with, whether regular feedback is given to staff, and whether people understand each other’s roles and their contribution.
This is just one of a range of free quizzes from Monkey Puzzle Training, a learning organisation providing learning and development through coaching, training and personal development. To have a look at the other free quizzes available – on things like ‘What’s your work life balance type’ and a ‘Time Sabotage Assessment’, visit the Monkey Puzzle Training website.
This free online bitesize book on Positive Mindset shows you ways that you can positively manage your mindset, including information on how your mindset influences your life, how to avoid being rigid and fixed in your thinking, and how to expand your mind to be receptive to learning new things.
Easy to read – you can read it in one go in about 10-15 minutes, or you can read it bit by bit when you’ve got time, and with 10 top tips to help you positively choose your mindset, this Bitesize book is perfect reading for busy people.
