 Jump into the Learning Pool

Learning Pool is the country’s largest on-line training community and is used by a majority of local authorities.
Ordinarily, the cost of accessing the Learning Pool would be beyond the budgets of most small to medium sized VCF sector organisations, however as Croydon Voluntary Action works in partnership with 5 others in the South London CVS Partnership it enables us collectively to offer these courses at £8.99 each thus creating opportunities that until now weren't available. 

There are two courses which are ideal for giving Learning Pool a go:

Keeping the Plates Spinning (10 minute time-management refresher) and
The Importance of a Healthy Workstation (how to keep repetitive strain and eye sight injuries at bay).

The latest addition is Working from Home / Outside the Office – which will help you consider all the factors, whether this is something you’re planning to do or you manage people who work in this way.
