We kickstart the campaign with the launch our new ‘Guide to developing your staff’. Replacing the ‘Learning and development guide’ we’ve created this guide to help you plan, deliver and evaluate the learning and development you provide for your staff.
We’ve identified 4 simple steps to create a learning plan for your service including templates to use in the planning process, different ways you can develop your staff and how to evaluate the learning.
Here's a sneak peak of what you can find in the new guide...
Creating an effective and efficient learning plan can seem like a daunting task as there are lots of different things you need to consider. This article breaks the task down, looking at the steps you need to take and the information you need to gather. You'll also find some useful templates to help you on your planning journey.
Mentoring provides an opportunity to identify an area of development for staff. The introduction of a mentoring programme has many potential benefits; both mentors and mentees can find the process to be a great way to build confidence and gain valuable skills.
Our 'Becoming a confident mentor' workshops can help you gain the knowledge and insight to help others develop in their role.
Graham Woodham, Programme Head for the Regulated Professional Workforce at Skills for Care, discusses the benefits of mentoring and how it can help you to develop your staff in his new blog.
