Learning at Work week is an annual event in May. It aims to to put a spotlight on the importance and benefits of learning and development at work. This year it takes place from 15th-21st May and the theme is 'Curious & Creative'.

ScOPT are running a series of articles on the website to tie in with Learning at Work week, as well as highlighting appropriate resources each day.

It’s Friday! We’re reflecting on our week of Learning at Work week articles - so here’s an additional list of resources, this time on reflection. There will be more articles over the weekend so keep an eye out.
