Training and development

Our people are our most important resource.  We are committed to their growth and development

Training at Ashcroft goes far beyond the standard. For us, training is essential to support people to fulfill their potential. We work with our staff to build their skills and develop their practice, working with people through every stage of their career with us.

We recognise that training isn’t all about classroom hours so we make sure we offer a balanced mix of coaching and on-the-job experience, vocational qualifications, professional qualifications, internal and external classroom based sessions.

In addition to working with selected providers to meet our statutory training needs, Ashcroft has a team of experts delivering specialised training for learning disability workers in areas such as Challenging Behaviour, Autism, Epilepsy, Safeguarding Adults and Person Centred Planning.
