Prepare for Take Off This Learning At Work Week (5th-11th October)!

Learning Journeys is the theme for this year's Learning at Work Week (5th-11th October), and to celebrate, we are inviting our users to take an educational trip round the globe to compete to win £100 Amazon vouchers.

Starting on Monday 5th October, competition participants will receive a daily email featuring a world map which will plot the destination for the day. The email will also contain a themed training byte and a link to a related tutorial.

Hidden behind travel-themed images in the tutorials will be a series of 'clues' in the form of scrambled words that will make up a phrase that participants will need to uncover to be in with a chance of winning.


Where Will The Adventure Take Us?

  • First stop on Monday will be Iceland and an Introduction to Icebreakers that Work
  • On Tuesday, we will pop over the Atlantic to the USA for a lesson on American English v British English
  • Wednesday’s stop will see us visit Australia for some advice on How to Switch off After Work
  • On Thursday we’ll hit Japan for some local tips on Business Card Etiquette including Digital Business Cards
  • Finally we will travel home on Friday via Italy for some Time Management advice and the Pomodoro Technique


How to Get Involved?

To get involved with the competition, your organisation must receive Headlines NewsFeed emails. These can be switched off after the competition if you don't want to receive Headlines thereafter.

Customers who already have Headlines switched on will be automatically enrolled in the competition, so please let us know if you would like to opt out.

The five 'clues' will be hidden within five courses chosen from our Infinity Library (see full list below), so users will have to complete the courses in order to find the clues, work out the phrase, and send to SkillGate to enter the competition.


Terms & Conditions

Competition entries must be sent to enquiries@skillgate.com by midnight on Sunday 11th October to be in with a chance of winning.
The winner will be selected at random on Monday 12th October, and the prize will be issued, via email, that week.
This competition can only be entered by customers using SkillGate Version 9.
