WATCH & GO platform

The WATCH & GO platform hosts a series of bitesize videos (mostly under 5 minutes) about personal effectiveness, communication, teamwork, management, leadership, wellbeing and culture.  Alongside the video content, “Sound Advice” podcasts are available on topics such as: wellbeing; remote working; collaboration; hybrid working; mental health; diversity inclusion and equality; resilience; and virtual meetings.  The resources are backed up with learning summaries to read, reflect on, and develop yourself.  If you learn better by “doing” then follow up your viewing and listening with Skills Challenges, which are directly linked to the video content.

To help you navigate the resources, Learning Pathways are available to guide you through specific topic areas.  Pathways are divided into short weekly instalments, typically just taking a few minutes each week.  A certificate is available upon successful completion of each Pathway.
