Birmingham City Council is offering advice on health and wellbeing to employees during the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus), especially around mental and psychological wellbeing, social wellbeing, and physical wellbeing. You may find that some or all this advice may be relevant to you, so please take onboard this information to protect your health, safety and wellbeing.
In December 2019, the council’s senior leadership team agreed a set of mandatory elearning modules that all employees must complete.
The aim of the mandatory modules is to help you understand and support the council’s culture and priorities.
Managers are expected to set an example, and fully support their employees to complete all mandatory modules by the deadline of end of March 2020.
The modules are short, and will take a maximum of 30 to 40 minutes each to complete.
Once you have completed the modules, you will not
have to repeat most of them for a further two years.
There are a number of key documents to support you if you have already started the journey. These can be used as reference tools or as downloadable documents to share with colleagues.
The Skills Health Check is a set of quizzes and activities designed to help you explore your skills, interests and motivations. By working through the Skills Health Check can help you decide what kind of jobs might be right for you and outline what skills you may wish to develop. You'll be able to download your report once you've completed at least one assessment.
The Skills Health Check will take approximately 3 hours to fully complete, each section should take about 10-15 mins to do. However, you can create an account and go back to it over as many days as you like and take as long as you like to complete all activities and quizzes.
