What wellbeing means in work and learning

work and learningOur Public Dialogues examined the topic of Work and Learning

In this video, Sharing Work and Learning participants from Falkirk talk about their experiences of the dialogue and what they will take from the process.

 

Wellbeing in Work and Learning means security, interest, achievement and challenge

jobAs members of the public, we think that having a job is better than no job, and we need to be safe at work and meet basic comforts such as heating and access to toilet facilities. The main value of work for many is financial security, stability and feeling safe. At its best work and learning can bring achievement and opportunity.

Our wellbeing in Work and Learning covers:

  • Work and learning offers achievement, satisfaction, appreciation, pride
  • Work and learning can bring a sense of fulfillment, belonging, shared interest and experience
  • We have a complicated relationship with money and make trade offs
  • Transition points need support

Public dialogues bring together members of the public and policy makers to discuss wellbeing and understand what matters to people.We spoke to a range of policy makers on:

  • why it’s important to talk about wellbeing
  • why are we talking about work and learning
  • about the value the centre can have across the UK
  • importance of dialogues with the public
