Welcome to the September ASA Update 

This month we’ve got bitesize learning on Why it’s time to forget the pecking order at work, the Top 10 Skills you will need in 2020, and congratulations to more learners who have received their accredited training certificates.

ASA Project End of Round 1

The first round of the Advice Skills Academy finishes at the end of September 2019.

The partnership has submitted another bid for ESF funding for a second round of funding, so hopefully there will be a decision on the funding for Advice Skills Academy round 2 early in 2020.

In the meantime you can still use the ASA website to look at the newsletters, the Bitesize learning, and the Learning Directory (although the directory will not be up-to-date).

Thanks to everyone for all of your enthusiasm for training and learning that we’ve sourced for you, and for all your feedback on the training and the project overall.

Bitesize Learning

In this TED talk from Margaret Heffernan, who is a former CEO of five businesses, she talks about how to bring out the best performance in teams – and its not about the ‘superstar’ performers – it’s the coffee breaks, and the times when members of a team ask each other for help, that brings about the best results.

This infographic looks at the range of skills that we’ll all need in 2020 – not that far away now – as the world of work is changing, with people living longer, technology changing at a rapid pace, and an increasing need to be globally connected.

Ranging from social intelligence, to sense making, adaptability, and new media literacy – this infographic summarises the most important areas that people should be thinking about, and learning new skills in for 2020 and beyond.
