Learning at Every Stage of your Employment with WCC

Warwickshire sees people development as an essential part of achieving its mission of ‘Making Warwickshire the best place to live and work’, including the Vision 2006-2015 “working in partnership to put customers first, improve services and lead communities”.

The Gateway to Learning offers a wide range of learning and development activities all in one place.

It covers all stages of your employment with WCC; from induction, through to appraisal and personal and professional development.

It includes 1:1 development, courses, tools and guides.

If you are a manager, there are also a range of toolkits, sessions, courses, and activities to help you.

If you find the information difficult to understand, we can provide it in another format, for example, in large print, on audio tape, in another language or through discussion.
