What Next : Workplace learning

Workplace learning opportunities


Workplace learning

Funding for workplace learning initiatives has decreased in recent years but there are still some opportunities. There are several ways you can take part, training can often be provided by an external training provider/instructor which can be delivered in the workplace, a classroom or by distance learning. In some workplaces in-house training is continually delivered by members of staff with the necessary skills. This is often described as on the job training. However everyday learning is continually taking place in workplaces throughout Ireland in more informal ways such as:

  • observing colleagues
  • listening to colleagues
  • asking questions
  • discussing a task which you may lack a particular skill to complete with a colleague and following this sharing your skills with each other
  • mentoring
  • self-studying

You can also try contacting organisations who actively promote workplace learning. These include:
