Learning and Development

Your future development

At the Library we're committed to enhancing learning and development for everyone - our staff as well as our users. This is increasingly important as we aim to lead the way in the digital information age by continuing to develop leading-edge innovations, in areas ranging from conservation to digitisation. Join us and you'll have plenty of opportunities to enhance your knowledge, your career prospects and your own personal development. It's about enjoying your work, as well as developing your potential and enabling you to deliver a service that always meets customers' needs.

Your initial induction will help you settle into your team and give you a feel for what your role will involve. Hopefully, it will educate, excite and inspire you about how you can help us to continually improve access to our world-class collections.

Our Performance Management Process plays a key role in our people development strategy. It enables us to agree clear objectives with you and ensures that everything you do helps the Library to deliver for our users. It also helps both you and us to identify your training needs and plan your career progress.

We offer access to a full range of internal and external training courses to develop you in your role.
