To do this effectively, they have to review the training and development
needs of their employees regularly, take action to satisfy these training
needs on recruitment and throughout employment and provide the necessary
resources, and regularly evaluate the effectiveness of this investment.

and regular reviews of all its employees, providing substantial training
budgets and extensive training programmes and making sure that every
single member of staff has an opportunity to benefit from these.
The benefit for members of staff is a range of opportunities that help
them to grow and become more effective. The benefit to our user communities
is increasing professionalism and improved quality of products and services.
