Online Core Training

This portal page has been designed to provide easy access for staff to online training and information.

The table below highlights training that is either essential for a role or staff group (where completion needs to be recorded), recommended to a staff group, or available as an optional extra to those who choose to extend their knowledge/learning.

All new starters should be directed to this page as part of their induction and if they are unsure should be guided by their Line Manager on the training appropriate to their role. Managers should also consider which content may be appropriate to existing staff and direct them as part of DPR or general discussions.
