Our MFT Induction programme is compulsory for all new employees and is an opportunity to meet with colleagues and learn more about the Trust, supported by a 2-5 day training programme for our clinical staff members.
To support staff to stay up-to-date with a range of mandatory topics, our learning management system sits within My ESR, allows access to training anywhere, anytime, via smart phone, tablet device, laptop or desktop, and because it’s self-service, you can book yourself onto classroom sessions, and even complete training on the move.

The Masterclass Programme covers a range of topics including; project management, managing teams fairly, achievement review, giving and receiving feedback, personal effectiveness skills, people management for managers, and customer service.
