Don’t have time to take a full day course? Try micro-learning. LinkedIn Learning offers thousands of short how-to videos ranging from a few minutes to seven hour courses. Topics range from bookkeeping to how to handle bullying in the workplace all from your desktop, smart phone or tablet. If bandwidth is an issue the School can download the content you want and send it to you on a memory stick. Managers and supervisors can work with the School staff to create customized learning paths for their employees to complete. Access requires a short meeting to discuss the learning need and the creation of a plan as to how LinkedIn (or other tools) will help the employee get there. With a plan, an email will be sent granting access to the platform. SAOs do not require a learning plan to be provided with a license. This is a free service available until October 2021. For more information or to get a license please contact either your regional Training and Development Advisor or the Manager of Community Development and Training, Sara Rylott at 867-767-9163 extension 21056.
