Your learning & development

Training course

 

We like people to explore their careers with us. You’ll find all kinds of learning opportunities on offer. There’ll always be a new challenge to take on, or something new to learn.

 

Your time with Headway will start with a full induction, and we’ve got everything in place to make sure you never stop learning. You’ll be able to take control of your own professional development. And you’ll find that, through the people you meet, the work you do, and experiences you share, you’ll grow in all kinds of other ways too.

The result of all of this? You’ll feel inspired to reach your full potential.

New starters

When you start, you will be given an induction schedule.  This will include learning about the organisation and what we do.  You will be given training on understanding more about the effects of brain injury on both the injured person and their families.

 

You’ll feel inspired as well as informed

You’ll also have an induction tailored to your job - this could                                                         include training days, e- learning, working with your                                                                team teams and shadow or sessions with your line manager.

Shape Your Future

At the heart of our commitment to our people’s                                                                     development and wellbeing

You will have annual and 6 monthly appraisals as part

of your ongoing development and supervisions to help

along the way.

We have many people that started with us as support

workers and have progressed up to co-ordinators and even

managers. 

Even though we are a small organisation, there is room to progress your career by taking opportunities when they arise, working hard and being prepared to be flexible and adapt.

Your induction is just the beginning of your learning with us. Every day, you’ll learn from your manager, your colleagues and, above all, people with a brain injury who you work with and, in some roles, support.

We also have a dedicated learning and development programme providing a wide range of training.
