    Your development matters

    The continuing development of the Avanti’s employees beyond their induction and initial training is an area of crucial importance for the MAT. The Avanti Institute for Professional Learning is part of an overall workforce development strategy that views CPD as an ongoing, planned learning and development process that contributes to work-based and personal development. The scope of the Avanti Institute covers all settings, institutions and teams and includes – but is more than – training, development and professional qualifications.

    What are we trying to achieve?

    The main strategic outcomes of the Avanti Institute for Professional Learning are to:

    Contribute to improved outcomes for all learners;
    Value all our staff by improving their competence, confidence and self-esteem;
    Develop a qualified workforce;
    Develop a learning culture across the MAT;
    Contribute to improving recruitment and retention of staff;
    Ensure that the MAT is compliant in regards to any statutory training requirements.
