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.

The idea this week was to post a series of articles during Learning at Work week. Following on from the article on the mindfulness this morning, here is a list of resources related to that topic. See all of our Learning at Work week articles.
