Onwards and upwards

The world of Adult Social Care is constantly evolving and changing, and we have to make sure we keep up.

Lincolnshire invests in its staff's professional development to make sure you are supported to remain up to date with all the changes. But don’t just take our word for it; our staff say that our training, professional development opportunities and protected CPD time are one of the most attractive things about working for Lincolnshire County Council.

Ensuring our workforce has access to learning opportunities and career progression opportunities that ultimately improve the support we offer to our residents, is a key driver for us and one we intend to keep at the heart of what we do.
