Learning, Wellbeing & COVID-19

Monday 27 April, 2020


Since the announcement of social distancing, there is much more free time to focus on ‘me’ time going around. Staying at home all day can really have a negative impact on your daily life. This is why it is important to take care of your body and just as importantly your mind at this difficult time. 

Some of us may feel low, anxious and worried about what the future may hold. There are also concerns when we think about our health, employment and financial stability. With so many what if's and uncertainty’s rotating around in our minds. Sometimes we just need to put a spin on the negative to a position and utilise this moment to focus on ourselves and what is in the present moment.

You can boost your mental health and wellbeing from learning! 

  • Setting personal/work goals
  • Connecting (virtually) with others/peers/likeminded professionals
  • Keeping your mind active
  • Learning something new
  • Broaden your mind and putting your new knowledge into practice

The Civil Service College is a place where expert-led virtual training is taking place. We are now hosting a range of courses that are delivered through online means where you can connect with other professionals. If you are looking to personally upskill your talents and improve your self-development, it is best to reflect on what your weaknesses or ‘grey areas’ are, to really maximise your full potential in learning. We also have available free webinars you can also take part in.

Whether you need to brush up on your Policy Skills and Knowledge, better your Leadership & Management attributes for your team, gain a stronger understanding of Law and Legality of the UK systems or learn the basic fundamentals of Government Finance. We have over 100 courses specialised in government, civil service and public sector training to choose from. As quotes inspire the importance of education 

“Never stop learning because life never stops teaching”

Stay at home, Learn at home!
