Our staff have access to excellent training and development opportunities to help staff develop in their career.

This includes statutory and mandatory training to ensure your clinical skills, techniques and occupational knowledge are up to date, as well as development opportunities such as training courses.


Learning and professional development

We support our staff to undertake formal skills training and continue their professional development. Staff may be eligible for funding to undertake an apprenticeship or a foundation degree, or undertake courses provided by the University of Hertfordshire or an alternative course provider.

Leading for excellence

This new initiative is supporting our staff who lead or manage teams to develop their leadership skills.

Essential training

We offer more than 300 online courses that staff can undertake either at home or in the workplace. The courses cover their core training skills as well as developmental topics.


We have well-stocked libraries at Watford and St Albans and medical education centres on all three sites. These facilities provide an accessible learning environment for those who wish to enhance their knowledge and understanding.
