We work with our Social Workers to fully understand their long-term career goals and make sure we’re providing the kind of support they need to achieve them. In a nutshell, our philosophy is that everyone, at every stage of their career, should have the opportunity to grow, develop and progress. So, as well as access to a tailored programme of courses to help you improve on your skills and further your career, our approach gives you the opportunity to try out new ideas for yourself, to grow your role alongside your career and to learn from great coaches and mentors.

In Adult Social Care we expect to support all staff to understand what is required of them and we provide a framework and resource to facilitate this. In turn we expect all staff to make full use of the learning and development opportunities on offer and to invest in personal and professional development to help us meet our commitments to the residents within Bexley. Our framework identifies what we offer and expect of staff when you  begin  with us, it outlines the core and developmental opportunities on offer to help you  flourish  and develop your career pathway supporting our priorities in ASC and suggests options to help you  excel   within a range of specialisms.
