The Festival of Learning is being launched as a result of the feedback received from the staff survey. Staff told us that they did not know about what development is available to them, as well as not having the time to be able to come and find out.

So you said- we listened!

The festival is for everyone and we will be showcasing a variety of development opportunities and information to support our colleagues in their own careers and work/life balance.
