Learning and development

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to continue to learn and grow throughout their lives. And we want our staff to have access to the skills they need to provide the very best support for our customers.

We are proud to say that our award-winning Learning and Development Team deliver hundreds of training courses to staff and carers every year and can also work with external organisations across our patch to support them with staff development in our areas of expertise.

Our staff and carers
