At every level throughout BTP you’ll find training and development to ensure that you fulfill your potential. This starts with an Induction course that will teach you all you need to know about BTP and what we do. Following on from this, you’ll then attend Diversity and Customer Service training days.

Once you have become an established member of your team you’ll continue to further develop your skills with various online e-learning packages, on the job training and classroom programmes.

Your Line Manager will help to keep you on track with regular updates and help you to identify and fill any skill gaps you have. You’ll work together to agree a clear, structured career and development plan so you can achieve all of your goals.
