Through supervision and appraisal, we will create a personalised development plan to help you fulfil your potential.

Further Professional Training

Whenever you're looking to gain functional skills or a degree, EPUT can support you in gaining the relevant qualifications you need to achieve your ambitions.

If you already have a Bachelor's degree you can apply to study towards a Master's Degree. EPUT could pay for the degree entirely if it is directly linked to your role, or cover up to 75% of the fees for other courses.

Flexible working is a vital part of improving working lives and has a demonstrable impact on recruitment, retention and return to work.

The Trust has developed flexible working in line with the needs of our employees. Through this, flexible working arrangements are introduced that are innovative and diverse, but which reflect the needs of the individual whilst continuing to meet the needs of the service. Read more about it here. 

We offer a number of development pathways both clinical and non-clinical. The clinical pathways include a fully supported pathway to Nursing and Occupational Therapy (OT) and excitingly we are currently developing pathways for further Allied Health Professionals such as Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) and Physiotherapy.
