Learning and development
We are committed to the continuous learning and development of all staff to enable people to develop individual skills and realise their full potential. We aim to engage all staff with a challenging and exciting learning culture and encourage openness, discussion and feedback so we can develop and continuously improve what we do.
Everyone has their own personal development plan with learning needs discussed and agreed by both the individual and the line manager. This encourages staff to take responsibility for their own learning. Development needs are identified at the recruitment and induction stages, at performance and development reviews, at the time of an employee’s role changing or being given additional responsibility and during one to ones between line managers and staff.
We also provide a personal development budget for all staff for job related learning.
Learning and development needs may be progressed in a number of ways including seminars, conferences, training courses, coaching, shadowing, mentoring, networking, internal communications sessions, on the job training, in-house expertise, and action learning.
