Our Calico Campus is available for all employees, at any stage of their career – learn about our culture and our mission on your very first day, experiencing a great induction like no other.

Develop your own values, recognise the values of others and develop your ability to offer and accept feedback – because working together, understanding our strengths and our own needs, means we can do more for our customers and truly make a real difference to their lives.

You’ll get an induction which is packed full of things you can learn – from your essential learning and job-shadowing in your department, to developing your resilience, supporting your mental health or enhancing your confidence in supporting your customers – there’s so many options to get you started!

People learning

When you’ve gone through your induction and probation period – you’ll have access to complete a wide variety of programmes to develop your industry and professional skills using our professional pathways. Our programmes are all free to complete and easy to access, giving you a flexible approach to your learning: what you want, when you want it!
