Evolving L&D at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust

by | Apr 15, 2015 | Case Studies

Towards Maturity and the CIPD have recently launched a new report L&D Evolving Roles: Enhancing Skills that considers the future direction of L&D and the skills that they need to get there.

The report included a number of detailed interviews including this one with Anita Esser – Head of Wider Healthcare Teams Education, University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.

University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust provides services to 1.9 million people living in Southampton and south Hampshire, and specialist services to more than 3.7 million people in the surrounding areas. The trust is a major centre for teaching and research in association with the University of Southampton and employs 10,550 people.

The trust has an established T&D structure which facilitates clear connections to organisational needs, so investment can be directed where it’s needed most. The team are also embracing how they can maximise the use of technology and new T&D approaches to facilitate learning in a challenging context.

Quick tips

  • It is higly beneficial for senior members of the training & development dept’ to have an active service delivery role. This ensures that those in the design of the training are embedded in the organisation and have a full appreciation of learner needs.
  • This structure also helps the team to prioritise with limited resources
  • The team recognise that their own mindset is a critical factor in ensuring they make the most of technology: ‘I think it’s our responsibility as leaders to not let our own anxiety of how to use technology in learning be a barrier to our learners.’ – Anita

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.

By popular demand, the 2019 Learning Health Check season has now been extended until Monday 16th September. There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.
