At Nationwide, we recognise it’s essential for our people to be able to keep their role-related skills and knowledge up to date.
Technical training and development are offered where this learning is essential to their role. Our Continued Professional Development offering also helps to maintain and enhance the knowledge, skills and experience related to our colleagues’ professions, following completion of their formal training.
The support we offer our colleagues is based on their individual needs and circumstances, and may include courses, workshops, or online learning through approved external providers. An approved list of professional qualifications supports further professional development, helping our people to achieve the next steps in their careers.
Sometimes it’s not a course or a qualification that is needed, quite often it's help with completing a task or finding expert advice. Our Sourcing Skills platform enables our people to post requests for advice or support on how to perform a task when they need it in the moment.
It’s also just as important that our people are in touch with external developments, and we offer support with attending conferences, webinars, network memberships and subscriptions at a local level.
