Career development & learning
Your first few days set the tone for things to come. That's why we put so much effort into giving people a warm welcome to their career with us.
No matter which area of the business you join, you’ll receive an induction that will help you settle into your team, give you a feel for what your role will involve and leave you feeling passionate, inspired and excited about your career with us.
Circle Health Group's training programmes
To support all employees to develop their skills, knowledge and behaviours including working towards relevant, valuable qualifications we launched a suite of national training programmes that have been designed to develop core skills and behaviours in key areas including management, nursing and customer service.
These are complemented by locally available courses to meet specific individual needs. Find out more about some of the Clinical Training available to our employees:
These are shared alongside role and site-specific inductions, and everyone will have a buddy to help and support them. It’s important to us that all new employees are inducted appropriately.
There are a variety of learning paths available. We offer courses and modules tailored to your role, experience and goals.
For each role, Circle Health Group provides a comprehensive range of training deemed necessary (and therefore mandatory) for the job. Much of our mandatory training is delivered through e-learning.
