The Trust

The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust has a national brief for training in the mental health professions, social care, education and forensic services across the age range from infants to adults.

Education and Training accounts for approximately half of the Trust’s activities and remains a key priority for the organisation. The primary objective of the Trust’s education and training strategy is to train professionals, and to develop the skills, competencies, resilience and capacity of the mental health and wider care workforce. The Trust is committed to developing new training initiatives to meet the needs of a modern health and social care sector, and is responsive to policy and initiatives from government and other relevant agencies. It is committed to the expansion of training opportunities for professionals from all communities and social classes and to their continuing personal and professional development.

The reputation of our training programmes is very high. Feedback from students is consistently positive and highlights the impact of our courses in enhancing the skills of practitioners (professionals in health and care settings as well as in schools, criminal justice) to deliver their roles.
