Our approach is to shape the right career for you, for our services and for our patients. We also know that career pathways should be unique to each person, diverse and flexible.
So whether you’re non registered, qualified, recently qualified, returning to work or an experienced practitioner, we’ll encourage you to talk about and explore the pathways and opportunities with your manager. It’s an approach that’s further supported by the performance review process.
You’ll find that information and resources are available every step of the way through Workplace, our online communication tool, on our intranet and through our Managed Learning Environment (MLE) system.
Career Pathways can help you to achieve a side variety of professional ambitions:
Registered Healthcare Professionals can move into specialist areas such as diabetes or learning disabilities. Or you might want to progress into a clinical leadership role, gain experience in a different area such as offender health services, or increase your exposure to multi-disciplinary teamwork.
Non-registered clinical support roles also offer opportunities to progress into a registered healthcare role. Healthcare Assistants can also take advantage of our recently launched scholarship programme which awards financial support to undertake a BSC in healthcare.
We also work to make sure you have the right skills and right support to achieve your career goals through education and practical work-based learning and role modelling. That could include:
- Shadowing other roles and service areas
- Mentoring and coaching
- Clinical supervision
- University apprenticeships and scholarships
- Access to professional training
- Leadership and management programs
We also run postgraduate rotation programs and apprenticeship schemes where you can rotate between services and increase the breadth of your healthcare career.
