Staff training and development


At Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust we aim to support our workforce as far as possible with their education and training goals.

Enhancing the skills of individual members of staff is a key part of our strategy to increase the capability of the Trust and improve our service to patients.

The Board of Directors recognises that every employee has a contribution to make towards the overall achievement of Trust goals. To develop and maximise this contribution, we are committed to a process of education, learning and development of all staff.

This process is vital to ensuring that the Trust is equipped with the right mix of knowledge, skills and capability to maintain service, reduce risk and achieve our business aims and objectives.

Education and training strategy

Our education and training strategy aims to:

  • promote the identification of training needs and priorities at individual, team and service levels
  • ensure that all staff can access appropriate opportunities for training, development and learning according to identified and relevant needs
  • support the development of an organisation-wide culture that values training and learning
  • define a framework for the effective management of education and training resources

Learning and development

Our Learning and Organisational Development Department provides a range of learning opportunities for staff through an extensive programme of training courses.

They also promote continuing professional development using a number of processes including the Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber commissioning system.

This enables access to a range of fully-funded university-based skills modules which can be undertaken individually or as part of a degree, diploma or master’s career development and study pathway.
