AN ORGANISATION which promotes adult learning is encouraging businesses to get behind a work day challenge next month (June).

NIACE Cymru’s Learning at Work Day takes place on Thursday, June 19 to coincide with Adult Learners Week in Wales.

Welsh Government deputy minister for technology and skills Ken Skates AM has set businesses the challenge of organising activities for employees, from vocational and essential skills to stress busting activities such as aromatherapy and Indian head massage.

NIACE Cymru director Cerys Furlong said: “From improved earning potential for employees through to increased profits for employers, Learning at Work Day is an opportunity to rediscover and celebrate the positive benefits of learning at, and for, work.

“We’re encouraging as many employers in Wales to sign up to this challenge and take part in Learning at Work Day 2014’
