Training and Development

Spectrum is passionate about training and development, and all our opportunities are collected under Spectrum Academy - our learning brand.


Spectrum Academy is the gateway to development opportunities for our staff

We achieve this by providing education, training, and development opportunities – which enable all our staff to deliver effective and compassionate care. Examples of opportunities you can access through the Academy include:

  • Mentoring and Coaching – including career and life coaching, supporting staff to achieve their full potential.
  • Talent Pool – The Academy offers opportunities for staff to register for development opportunities, including secondments, job shadowing and involvement in new projects.
  • Apprenticeships – a wide variety of programmes and courses funded through the Apprenticeship Levy.

Our staff are the beating heart of Spectrum: an incredible, committed group of people drawn from a wide array of backgrounds, each bringing their own skills, experience and insight into their work. Together, we really do make a difference.

NHSE and I commission Spectrum CIC to deliver primary care services within a number of prisons across the North of England. Spectrum is a value-based organisation that strives to deliver quality care for patients and also provides a supportive working environment for their staff. COVID-19 has created additional challenges and throughout these challenging times, Spectrum has worked hard to maintain safe care for our vulnerable clients
