|Learning & Development|
Every year we invest millions of dollars in teaching, research, education and training programs to enable our staff to develop their careers. We understand the need for a solid foundation and continuous education to achieve high levels of performance on the job and to advance to the next level of responsibility.
There are many examples within our organisation of people who have started as a casual on our wards, as a student nurse, or as a volunteer who are are now senior executives within SV&MHS.
A key feature of St Vincents & Mater Health Sydney (SV&MHS) facilities is the close linkage between quality outcomes in health services to teaching and research - all within a framework of care and compassion. SV&MHS is committed to ongoing training and development. We provide some of the best nationally accredited and recognised training to all staff, irrespective of where they work within the organisation.
Investment in the future
We see learning and development as an investment in the future. From the moment you start with us, you will be exposed to continuous opportunities for learning and development. The process of acquiring skills and developing leadership ability continues all the way up to and through to senior management positions. This is an important component of our philosophy of promoting from within our organisation.
You can benefit from having a career or professional development plan whether you're at the beginning of your career, looking to make some changes in your present position, or even if you already have your dream job and want to enrich your skills and knowledge. By updating and developing your skills you will find renewed satisfaction in your career as you enhance your current role or, possibly, take on a new role within SV&MHS.
Career and professional development is a partnership between you, your manager and SV&MHS. You drive your career development plan, your manager assists and coaches you, and SV&MHS supports your efforts by providing a framework for the process and resources for your development.
The range and complexity of services provided at SV&MHS creates an ideal environment for professional development in many disciplines and professions.
