learner to engage. Te thought process includes: “I need to engage in this learning because if I don’t, then ‘x’ will happen and if I do engage then ‘y’ will happen.” For example, “If I buy a deckchair I can enjoy the sun, and if I buy sunscreen, I won’t get burnt.”

Post course (the behaviour change): 1. Embedding the learning Memory-jogging and embedding of the learning while at work. For example, “Once I have bought my deckchair and sunscreen, what will make me use it – and continue to use it?”

2. Track and measure change Tracking behaviour change through impact and engagement to show change of behaviour that is measurable (qualitative/quantitative). For example, “How will my partner know that I am using the sunscreen they bought me, and that I am using it effectively? How will my partner know if it is the right kind of sun- screen, if it is the right factor? Will they buy it again or a different one?”

A learning campaign sits around the learning pathway; it is structured from before the learning ‘begins’ until well after a learning programme

❝ Campaign Learning

What is being offered at the moment?

Learning providers For the most part, the offer of an internal communications campaign is rarely present. When it is present, it is more often than not a basic communications campaign.

Campaign Learning adds value to learning products and services through increased awareness and

participation, and the embedding of behaviours

or pathway has ‘finished’. It is implemented through messaging that is designed with the clarity and structure of a well-told story. Troughout the process, there are

four key elements to support effective implementation. Our research has provided the opportunity to develop the FLAG model (Fig.2) to support the effective implementation of a learn- ing campaign. Tis model has been tried and tested in multiple sectors.
