Learning and Development

We aim to develop a learning culture that inspires and energises our people to help them meet and exceed our business objectives and provide a valued experience for our members. 

Here are just some of our current programmes, designed to help everyone progress.

Be Aspirational and Career hub

Be aspirational helps you to build a development plan. Once you know what your aspirations and strengths are, what you enjoy doing and what may be getting in the way of your development you can start to see your career pathway. 

Our career hub is a user friendly career planning development tool to provide you with career assessments, tools, skills and advice to help with your personal growth journey. 

Monthly Golden Hours

Each employee can have one protected ‘Golden Hour’ per month, to devote to personal growth.

Benenden University

We have partnered with York St John to collaboratively build a degree apprenticeship programme for colleagues to undertake either a Chartered Management Degree or an Executive Master of Business Admin (MBA) on a part-time basis.

Coaching and Mentoring programme

Mentoring is a relationship of semi-structured guidance whereby one person shares their knowledge, skills and experience to assist others to progress in their own lives and careers. We now have a group of trained mentors available as part of our new mentoring programme available for you.

Our new mentors will be available to support our people who would benefit from having a mentor to assist them with their development.

Leadership Development

We encourage personal development and professional fees are reimbursed where directly related to your learning and development.

Leadership courses for all managers and leaders.
