Learning and development. Just another buzzword? Or should it be a deal-breaker when choosing my next employer? Should I diversify my skills—or hone them? Is it really the gate-way to career advancement?
These are some of the questions we might ask ourselves when someone brings up the topic of learning and development. And they’re usually followed by the less-than welcome thoughts, “Who has the time, anyway?” and “What does it even mean to have a learning culture, when it comes down to it?”
That’s the thing. At Oracle, we know how busy you are. We know you have that deadline and that thing after work. But we also know, you crave opportunities to grow and stretch your abilities. And most of all, we know that we succeed by helping you succeed.
That’s why, here at Oracle, we have created a learning environment that is based entirely around you and your needs. When you join Oracle, you’re not just embarking on a career. You’re setting out on a life-long journey of self-discovery and professional growth.

Whether you have 2 minutes or 2 hours to focus on learning, you can dip into our vast library of online resources and choose a learning path that fits your schedule and your interests.

So you can quickly find a customized list of classroom sessions, virtual live classes, online courses, books, videos, and quick job aids—and choose the medium that best suits your needs.
Never Stop Learning
The rest, as they say, is down to you. Get the conversation going with your manager. Start thinking about where you want to see yourself in two years’ time, or even ten. Why not start your Digital Marketing education while you wait for your connecting flight? Or master the fundamentals of Data Science after the kids go to bed? Or better yet, make time for self-development while you’re at work. Because that’s what it means to have a learning culture—when it comes down to it.
