Staff learning and development
Caerphilly County Borough Council is committed to ensuring that its employees have the right skills, knowledge and experience to carry out their roles and develop to fulfil their potential.
A wide range of opportunities for learning and development are available within the workplace. All new employees undertake an induction to help them settle in and understand more about the council.
The council offers its employees a range of in-house learning and development courses as well as specific job-related training. Courses include:
- Assertiveness skills
- Creative thinking and problem solving
- Influencing and negotiation skills
- Listening and questioning skills
- Managing conflict
- Motivating other for improved performance
- Running effective meetings
- Stress awareness
Throughout your working life at the council, you will be provided with the opportunity to regularly discuss your work, needs and aspirations with your line manager.
In addition to this, the annual Performance and Development Review (the PDR) gives employees the opportunity to discuss work objectives and personal development in further detail and enables any learning and development needs to be identified and planned for.
