Learning & Development
We are keen to support our staff in both their personal and professional development. To do this we have a range of opportunities available to all staff in addition to the statutory training that is required by law.
We value vocational learning as much as academic learning and encourage our staff to share their knowledge with others. We believe that all staff should have equal access to learning and development opportunities and we are committed to annual appraisal and development.
