Our Workforce and Development Team are committed to supporting your career development and offering learning and development opportunities. Our PROUD Leadership Development Programme ensures our managers are equipped with the skills to lead with excellence. Created together and built on our organisational values, each module is designed to explore how we can be our best more of the time and bring out the best in others. The team also offer access to coaching and mentoring, run our regular leadership forums.
We recognise that the transition from been a student to a qualified member of staff can be challenging. Our Preceptorship Academy Programme is here to support staff to develop their skills and knowledge base and develop confidence as an autonomous practitioner in a safe and supportive environment.
The Preceptorship Academy combines additional training, encour-ged reflection, peer support and an opportunity to gain valuable experience within the workplace. For those whom start within the mental health inpatient services we also have an ‘Inpatient New Starter Group’ which meets monthly to share best practice and enhanced evidence-based learning.
Our career clinics offer our nurses one-to-one support to help you formulate an action plan and support your future career goals. Our Professional Strategy supports our staff to understand the training and development required for progression and opportunities to follow different routes through professional leadership, expert practice and academia.

We celebrate long service at our monthly staff awards and once a year we get together for our glittering annual staff awards to recognise and reward excellence and achievement.
