New academy for health and care staff in BSW

New academy for health and care staff in BSW

An exciting new academy is now available for all health and care staff working in Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire (BSW).

The BSW Academy is possible because partner organisations are committed to working together differently as part of one big health and care system and recognise that the workforce is absolutely its greatest asset.

That’s why the BSW Partnership is investing in the BSW Academy to provide inclusive, rewarding career progression and opportunities for everyone. The BSW Academy will work collaboratively with existing organisational academies and networks.

Founded on five pillars of leadership, learning, inclusion, innovation and improvement each pillar works both independently on key priorities and collectively to deliver the aspirations of the academy.

  • Leadership – providing a united voice across BSW, which sets clear direction, enables cultural transformation and listens to its workforce and communities.
  • Learning – increasing the quality, quantity and access of the learning and development opportunities on offer.
  • Inclusion – being clear about our ambition. Starting the conversation with our workforce and communities to define and address the unmet need.
  • Innovation – proactively supporting our partners to identify, adapt, implement, and evaluate innovations and share learning.
  • Improvement – building and spreading a consistent, continuous, improvement culture across BSW.

Find out more about the pillars and who the dedicated lead is by visiting the BSW Academy website.
