Hive Learning Network
Join Guernsey's online learning platform
It has never been more important to develop your skills - and the skillset that matters has never been in such a constant state of change. As we emerge from the pandemic and look to the future, we need to be more agile, more innovative; and develop leadership skills whether we’re leading projects or people. We’re also all incredibly busy - so we need an approach to learning that can keep up with us.
Learning needs to become a weekly, even daily, habit. It needs to be bitesize enough that you can learn something while drinking your morning coffee, and actionable enough that you can make a small change straight away in your next meeting, project, or presentation. The Learning Network, developed as part of the SMART Guernsey Economic Development Programme and powered by Hive Learning, features both Quick Reads - pieces of content that take just minutes to digest and put into action - and more immersive learning Pathways - a more structured 15-20 minute course around a specific topic - on a wide range of themes ranging from personal development to innovation and leadership. Giving people across the Bailiwick practical tools to grow their businesses, and to swap ideas and insights and troubleshoot challenges with their peers — so we can all make progress faster.
