Developing our People
We recognise the important role that learning and development plays in supporting our people to achieve success and to thrive at work. To help our people work effectively within a transformed workplace and to enable them to progress through the different stages of their careers, we have development frameworks in place to support key themes such as, learning and teaching, leadership and management and digital skills.
