Suggestions for using the toolkit

How the toolkit is organised

The toolkit groups tools, resources, policies and training into topics that relate to your work at the Trust.

When you visit a topic, you see immediately

  • useful tools, resources, policies, training and links that will help you deal with work tasks and challenges
  • explanations of when to consider using a particular tool or resource

The most important thing to remember is that YOU are in control

The tools and resources in the toolkit are short and practical.

They are designed to save you time, help you act effectively and enable you to make decisions that deliver good outcomes for you and others.

BUT... How you use the toolkit is up to YOU.

Build your leadership and management skills - at your own pace
