Career development and learning
Circle’s Learning and Development Strategy
Circle’s Learning and Development Strategy sets out how Circle Health will provide excellent and innovative learning and development opportunities to improve patient safety, experience and outcomes.
- Our role as an employer and the actions we need to take for the development of our own workforce.
- Our role as a provider of learning and development for our clinical and non-clinical workforce as well as health professionals in training.
Our strategy reflects the Circle behaviours and the Circle Credo and will help us build a current and future workforce that has the knowledge and skills to deliver high-quality healthcare in a flexible and innovative way, in whatever environment is required to meet the needs of our patients.
As an employer, our Learning and Development Strategy explains how Circle will ensure the development of a competent, caring and capable workforce; ensure the development of high-quality learning environments and develop new training pathways.
Circle is committed to reviewing annually the support required for the delivery of learning and development and we expect all of our staff to be active and enthusiastic facilitators of training. Staff
training and development needs are identified through the annual appraisal process which will inform the training needs analysis.
Models of delivery of care are changing and it is important that Circle staff are trained and supported to adapt to new systems and settings. Circle will develop training pathways that respond to changing models of service delivery and work with local Health Education England Offices and Higher Education Institutes to support the development of appropriate learning and development programmes for our staff.
Circle is committed to developing leaders within the organisation and growing talent. By developing our current and future leaders we will ensure:
- Circle is the provider of choice for patients
- Commissioners choose Circle over our competitors in terms of commissioning services
