Learning, Culture and Organisational Development

A man at a conference

We are committed to providing new learning opportunities, delivered in a variety of different ways, to help staff achieve the best possible ongoing personal and professional development for them.

Lifelong learning and ongoing professional development are important principles supported by the Trust. By encouraging and supporting the professional development of our staff, the high standard of care of our patients and service users is maintained and continually improved. 

As a department we see one of our signature strengths as being our responsiveness to our customers. The Trust employs nearly 9,000 employees across a huge geographical area and we are constantly working hard to develop ways in which training can be facilitated and delivered ensuring the learning experience is both informative and as enjoyable as possible for our staff.


Training opportunities

Trust employees are given access to a wide portfolio of education and training opportunities including:

  • core induction 
  • essential training
  • therapeutic and clinical skills training
  • IT training
  • skills for work and life advice and support
  • leadership and management development training
  • training around the Trust's core philosophy of recovery 

All members of staff employed by the Trust are required to undertake core essential training relevant to their job role, some of which can be completed via e-Learning. Regular ‘training needs analysis' is carried out to ensure that the essential training that staff have to complete is both current, fit for purpose and relevant to service need.


Other initiatives
