As Learning and Development Lead I work with carers, colleagues and corporate clients to ensure that their professional and personal development is achieved. My view of learning is that it is an active and participative process. It is about supporting and facilitating the growth of people through their own processing of information into knowledge, values, behaviours and skills. Working collaboratively, I will encourage carers and others to become co-facilitators of their learning. I will provide opportunities for a learning culture to be strengthened and sustained, embracing the values of tide. I believe in life long learning and the development of excellence.
