Learning, Education and Development

Welcome to the Learning, Education and Development section of the internet.

Our people are very important to us, without you, we cannot achieve our goals and objectives which support us all to be safe, kind and effective. Every single one of you is important and has a vital role to play in the delivery of excellent care to our patients. A significant number of our staff have worked with us for a large part of their career and we feel it is important to value and reward that loyalty and dedication with great development opportunities.

It doesn’t matter what job you do, what level you’re at or what age you are, it’s never too late to develop your skills or learn something new and develop to your full potential.

As an employer we firstly have a duty to our staff and our patients to ensure all statutory and mandatory training obligations are met. Ongoing compliance with these is essential before we can support you further in your development. Providing you are up to date with your statutory and mandatory training, you will have access to a range of opportunities to support you in keeping your skills up-to-date, allowing you to stay at the forefront of developments in health and social care. These include vocational courses, work-based learning, degree and post-graduate qualifications, as well as bespoke CPD programmes.

Our ethos is that of continuous learning, education and development; as we all know nothing stands still and the only way we can try to keep pace with the constant change is to be open to new opportunities and new ways of working. With that in mind all learning, development and education must support safety, clinical outcomes and the patient experience.

Coming soon.....our Learning, Education and Development team are passionate about learning and have developed a brand new dedicated website which will launched over the coming weeks. The aim is to provide you with up to date relevant information on all of the opportunities available to you, a calendar of upcoming events and access points to booking onto sessions and accessing e-learning.

We look forward to supporting you throughout your career and getting the most out of the opportunities we can provide, for the benefit of our patients, our colleagues and yourself.
