Investing in your development

We’re committed to investing in the ongoing development of our staff and we provide a range of learning opportunities to do this. We’re recognised for this commitment through our Investors in People Silver accreditation.

We also offer developmental opportunities through our graduate trainee, apprenticeship and work placement schemes.

Individual learning

Your individual learning needs are identified with your line manager and we tailor your development package accordingly to offer a blended and engaging range of learning opportunities. This includes: mandatory training such as health and safety; learning pathways based on your role and the service you work in; access to more than 220 e-learning modules online; formal qualifications; on the job shadowing and mentoring.

Leadership and management development

A management development programme has been offered for many years and this year we’re launching a Leadership Academy to strengthen this.

Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF)

Where you’re required to complete QCF as part of your role or for continuous practice development, we support you to do this by paying for the fees and giving you study leave.
