Training and Development

We are fully committed to training, educating and developing our workforce with the knowledge, skills and capabilities to provide a high quality customer-focused service to our patient’s service users and carers. We provide learning opportunities from induction to leadership and management development programmes for those with line management responsibility.

Our offer includes recruiting apprentices, career development, leadership and management development, plus statutory and mandatory training.


Apprenticeships is a nationally recognised training programme that combines working with studying for a work-based qualification. The qualifications vary from level 2 (GCSE) to level 6/7 (degree, master’s level) can be over one to four years in length (depending on the programme). They can only be funded through the apprenticeship levy which the government introduced in April 2017.

Leadership and management development

We believe that excellent leadership and people management are fundamental to the success of enabling and delivering our people strategy.

Statutory and mandatory training

Aligned to the Core Skills Training Framework, statutory and mandatory training is an integral component of professional practice which provides knowledge and skills for our workforce.
