Development and training

We support everyone who works for Sense to reach their full potential. Whether you’re a support worker, an administrator or a manager you’ll find opportunities to learn and grow.

If you join Sense as a support worker, you don’t need to have previous experience or qualifications - we’ll teach you everything you need to know. And if you join us further along your career path, you’ll also have access to plenty of opportunities to expand and develop your specialist, management and leadership skills.


When you first join Sense

When you first join our team, you’ll get an induction tailored specifically to your role.

With a mixture of online and face-to-face training, you’ll learn about Sense, our vision and our values, as well as practical skills to help you in your role.

If you’re in a role directly supporting people with complex disabilities, you’ll receive all the support and training you need to provide safe and effective support.
