Learning and development

We are becoming a learning organisation by making learning central to everything we do.

It's important to us that all our employees and volunteers have the right opportunities to develop their skills and knowledge. 

As part of our commitment to being a learning organisation we encourage everyone to enjoy at least three days' learning a year.

We offer a huge range of learning and development opportunities including:

Key areas

  • Mandatory training

    There are a number of courses you must complete when you join us.

  • Virtual classrooms

    Learning from your computer or telephone.

  • eLearning

    You can access a lot of training courses from your own computer.

  • Trauma-informed practice learning portal

    Access online learning courses in partnership with Psychotherapy Excellence.

  • AP4U learning opportunities 

    Mental health qualifications for employees and volunteers

  • Three-day learning commitment

    Everyone at Barnardo's should have at least three days of learning per year.



It can be daunting starting a new job, but we've got you covered.
