Practices: Bollywood dancing lessons and drumming are among the activities employees of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea have enjoyed during its Adult Learners' Week. As part of the council's commitment to making learning and development integral to work, staff are encouraged to try something different during the annual event. Personal and professional skills are developed in the training centre and through secondments. Rated “excellent” as a local authority, Kensington and Chelsea holds full staff surveys every two years as well as an annual Excellent in Action staff awards. Employees and members of the public can nominate individuals or teams for the prize. Certificates are awarded to nominees, a glass bowl to the winner.
