On Thursday 28 April, our team gathered in the London HQ office for photo headshots by a professional photographer, a yearly occurrence, and to take part in a number of training initiatives.
We are always keen to provide new starters with professional headshots that they can use on their LinkedIn, and elsewhere in their professional lives. As many of the Mindful Education team take advantage of our flexible working arrangements, with the majority of their time spent working from home, this was a fantastic opportunity to meet and greet new starters who have joined since our last company gathering.
With so many team members in the office, this also provided the opportunity to complete a day of in-person training, supplemented by coffee and cake, which covered subjects from course planning, to supporting our partners with learner recruitment. This is certainly an important time of year for these conversations, as over the course of the Spring and Summer months, Mindful Education works with our partners to plan for the next academic year, and support them with getting the right learners on their courses.
Teams across Mindful Education have been working diligently to prepare for these key projects, which will result in more help and support for our college and training provider partners, in the run up to September. For example, our Marketing team has created updated marketing collateral, social media content, and new imagery for our partners to use during the recruitment process.
After an eventful office day, the teams enjoyed a social at the Sun and Thirteen Cantons and had the chance to relax and catch up with their colleagues.
