New Training And Wellbeing Hub Launched!

Today we have launched our exciting new virtual learning hub, offering all employees of member businesses free unlimited access to over 200 courses! With a variety of topics to choose from, including business essentials and mental wellbeing, the learning hub aims to help local employees to learn new skills, boost mental health and support businesses with attracting and retaining talent.

The platform is delivered in partnership with SEEDL, a pioneering virtual live learning subscription service, which works with many of our fellow Business Improvement Districts in the capital. Employees of our members can choose from a range of subjects from retail management and customer service to Excel, presentation skills and project management. With so many types of businesses in the Baker Street Quarter area, this is a great way for us to address learning needs of retailers, hospitality businesses and professional services firms alike.

Courses are uniquely all live interactive webinars with the option to view at a later date, allowing local employees to learn on a flexible basis. Learning certificates will be issued on completion of a course so that employees can evidence their professional development, and there will be special prizes for those that complete the most courses each month!
