Professional Development

Welcome to the Professional Development arm of the Faculty of Research and Clinical Education. We are a multi-professional team of Nurses, Midwives and AHPs supporting both Pre-Registration and Post-Registration development across the acute and community settings with Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust. We provide resources, advice and support that enable clinical areas to develop their staff in line with service needs and for individuals to progress along their own personal development journey. Maintaining quality and safety across all of the services is of paramount importance to us and we ensure this by providing evidence based education programmes and by developing policies and competencies that set and maintain standards and are inline with strategic objectives.

If you have any questions related to Professional Development your first point of call should be our FAQ section, whether you’re a student that needs help, you’re a supervisor guiding a student and need some advice or your looking to take the next step on your professional journey we’ve got you covered. If you have any further questions or you just want to get in touch please take a look at our About Us page and one of the team will be happy to help in any way we can.
