Learning and development

We support and encourage staff to access learning and development opportunities to develop behaviours, skills and knowledge to strengthen our services.

What happens in learning and development?

​​​​​​​Our experienced team of trainers, facilitators and coaches provide a vast range of courses to enhance the skills of our workforce. This includes: providing information, advice and guidance via tailored, in-house training consultancy; commissioning internal and external educational, training, learning and development opportunities, and designing, co-ordinating and delivering tailored corporate learning programmes.

Everyday is different, interesting and challenging but the people I work with are supportive which contributes to our success as a team.

Why is learning and development important to the Trust?

Our team enables staff to manage their own learning and provides a wide range of activities, including e-learning, to improve skills. We value vocational learning as much as academic learning and encourage our staff to share their knowledge with others.

The learning and development team offer in house courses and programmes ranging from personal development and essential skills through to leadership and management development. As a Trust we offer fully funded apprenticeship qualifications for staff at all levels to support their personal and career development, and have a number of different programmes ranging from entry level to Master’s qualifications. We also have opportunities for internal coaching and mentoring that all staff can access.

Our recruitment is person-centred. We're committed to keeping you informed at all stages and supporting you along the way.

You'll receive a first rate induction and access to a range of development programmes.

You’ll have access to our generous pension scheme, health service discounts and 27 days of annual leave plus bank holidays, which increases the longer you’re in service.

If you need a DBS check, we will pay for it, as well as your annual subscription fee for the DBS update service.

I take pride in the fact the work I do contributes in some way to making a difference to others.

Mandatory and essential training

The learning and development team are responsible for the co-ordination of mandatory and essential training within the Trust.

We are committed to supporting staff to fulfill their statutory and professional obligations to keep their knowledge and skills up to date. All new recruits will be set up with access to our e-learning site where they can keep up to date with mandatory training.

The pandemic brought about significant change in the way training was delivered to our staff. We adapted quickly, supporting with the development of new ways of doing things. I'm proud to be part of that team.
