Upon joining the organisation, we will support you through a dedicated induction programme at both corporate and department level.

We are committed to developing managers and leaders across the organisation and have developed a partnership with De Montfort University offering Post Graduate Certificate in Managing Health and Social Care and the Post Graduate Diploma in Health and Social Management. The Trust also offers a Certificate in Leadership and Management, accredited by the ILM at level three, and a Team Leading Qualification at Level Two.

In addition, our Trust is heavily involved in leading a project with other Trusts to develop a Coaching Collaborative, where organisations work together to provide coaching support to managers at all levels.

Vocational Training within the Trust is seen as a key priority with NVQs being offered in Care, Administration and Customer Service.

The majority of NVQ qualifications are offered internally through our own centre accredited with City and Guilds, and support is given to staff by our experienced assessors and verifiers. This can include progression to complete a Foundation Degree.
Essential Skills Training is offered in partnership with Bournville College enabling staff to gain essential qualifications at Key Skills one or two in literacy and numeracy.
The Admin Academy is an organised professional structure where all admin and clerical posts are designed into a clear, simple professional structure and development opportunities are tailored to their specific needs and job roles. The Admin Academy is based on Academy Standards that are linked with service commitments including referral management, health records, 18 week pathway, clinical correspondence and patient management.

At UHCW we pride ourselves on our close working partnerships between our hospitals and education establishments. We have a strong relationship with Warwick Medical School and Coventry University, providing clinical placements and training for their students who are the next generation of doctors, nurses, midwives and healthcare staff.

It is possible that students may be present during consultations, or may wish to discuss health issues with patients. The student’s status and reason for their presence will be explained to you by a senior doctor or member of the nursing team and your consent obtained. If you do not wish the medical students to be present during your consultation with your doctor, you have the right to refuse. If you do not know who a member of staff is at any time, do not hesitate to ask them to explain who they are and what they do.

This decision will be respected and will in no way jeopardise care or treatment now or at any time in the future. In practice, the majority of patients are happy to have the involvement of students in their care and will make themselves available as case studies or for the purpose of student assessment and testing.

Students are also keen to hear patients' views and comments on their skills. If you have any concerns or queries, please don't hesitate to raise them with the staff responsible for your care.
