Learning and Development Opportunities

woman and man on laptopsOur friends at Hampton Public Library have identified online opportunities for City of Hampton employees to engage in remote learning. Employees can take time to invest in themselves by developing knowledge and skills related to their current job or to prepare for that next step in their careers.

There are hundreds of courses to choose from, including simple tutorials. Feel free to review all of these resources to find topics and formats that suit your learning needs. 

NOTE: Before beginning a learning opportunity during your workday, check in with your supervisor to ensure the topic is meaningful for your position.
