About the Campaign for Learning and Learning for Work Day

Learning at Work (LAW) Day is an annual awareness campaign organised by the Campaign for Learning. LAW Day aims to promote and support workplace learning events across the country. It encourages people to offer learning to all employees especially to those that may not participate in current learning opportunities. LAW Day is part of Adult Learners' Week.

The theme of this year's LAW day is 'Many Ways to Learn' and focuses on: maximising the opportunities for employees to learn by cultivating and supporting different types of learning at work; supporting employees to become more self-directed and able to manage their own learning; supporting employees' motivation to learn through developing their understanding of learning preferences.

Promoting Learning at Work Day in your branch

There is much evidence to suggest that where unions are actively involved in the learning agenda and professional development, union membership increases and activism increases.

If you are a UCU rep or ULR and would like to get involved with organising a LAW day event you can visit the  Learning at Work Week. There is also a wealth of other information including on the site including: 

  • FAQs
