Excellent professional and personal development

Close up of hands in a meeting
ATL is committed to helping you develop throughout your career. Whatever your job and wherever you are in your career, we have a comprehensive range of accredited learning and development opportunities to fit you.

We know you want courses that include a range of learning methods that are delivered by well-informed, high quality tutors and are close to your home. All our courses, whether delivered faceto- face or online, will help develop the skills you need to achieve your personal and professional goals, such as leadership skills and managing challenging behaviour.

Our learning and development programme has been designed to help you identify and meet your learning needs as part of your performance management review, professional standards in your sector, or whatever development structure your workplace offers.

We provide our workplace reps, health and safety reps, and union learning reps (ULRs) with tailored training courses. And for our newly qualified members, we run summer seminars before you enter the workplace for the first time. To find out about our national and regional CPD opportunities, visit our learning zone, call ATL's learning and development department on 020 7782 1582 or email us for further details.
