Learning at Work Week - 10 to 14 June 2019

Our Learning at Work Week is a fantastic opportunity for our employees to learn more about a whole range of subjects in a flexible and engaging way.

Colleagues in our Organisational Development team have been working with people from teams across the council to pull together a programme of activities which has something for all of our employees. From drop-in sessions and Q&As, to presentations and information stands, there should be something that suits everyone. 

The classes and information sessions are all very informal and aimed at helping our employees learn more about subjects they are interested in, and developing skills that can be used in all areas of life.  

See below for a summary of what's on offer. There are sessions taking place within Renfrewshire House, Underwood Road and Online.  Full details, times and venues will be available in our Learning at Work Week guide in the Related Media section or you can click on the links on this page to book and find out more information and times available.
