Career progression and development

How we help you to continue developing and progressing.

“Asides from all the training to undertake, my statutory duties and role within social care, I have also had the opportunity to undertake leadership and management training. Where I have expressed specific areas of CPD interest, I have developed my knowledge and skill within special areas of interest, for example mental capacity and deprivation of liberty safeguard.”
