It helps staff to grow their careers, and be the best they can be. You can create your own tailored development plans, and work toward your career goals. All the opportunities we offer at VGC are accessible to everyone.
The programme will help you to achieve career and personal success.
All VGC employees benefit from the core and intermediate development programmes. These are followed by a management and leadership programme for anyone who already fills a senior position, or who has such a position in their sights.
VGC Academy approach to learning and development makes sure that every employee can:
- have meaningful conversations about their careers
- access learning opportunities that will help them to progress
- get constructive feedback on their job performance.
People who take part in the leadership and management modules will become the managers and leaders of the future.
“At VGC, we aim to give all of our people the support they need to achieve their potential, whatever their role and wherever they started their VGC journey,” said group services director Ciara Pryce. “Working with learning and development specialists, our HR department created the VGC behavioural competency framework, which has been carefully designed to reflect our values and be relevant for everyone.
“It focuses on positive, values-led behaviours that transfer across all areas of our work, and enable people to plan their goals, work well together and deliver results.”
VGC is defined by our values, by the things we believe are important; these behaviours are the practical application of those values.
Twelve key behaviours
The 12 behaviours set out in the framework reinforce our company values. The behaviours include
- client focus
- team work
- diplomatic sensitivity.
Our behaviour-based safety programme includes our key influencers and a workforce leaders’ course. As well as health and safety, it covers
- fairness, inclusion and respect (FIR)
- mental health
- modern slavery.
In autumn 2020 we gained a CITB grant to support our leadership and management development programme.
