Our award winning Talent Academy was launched in 2017 to develop excellence across OnSide and the Network. Since then, 500 employees have taken part in over 20 different programmes. As a result of their training and development, we have seen employees progressing to brand new positions in both their Youth Zone and in other Youth Zones in the Network. At OnSide, we encourage and support personal development. Individual needs are discussed, and the Talent Academy provide a bespoke training offer to meet the needs of the OnSide team, with recent training covering unconscious bias, coaching and safeguarding.Learn more about the Talent Academy's impact
