The Staff Development Programme: Changing the way we work
This will be a big year of change for Barnet, as we prepare to move to Colindale and develop new ways of working.
TW3 is more than just a move, it’s about embracing new ways of working so that we can deliver the best service to our customers. This is something that all of us, whether we are moving to Colindale.
We’ve created a new Staff Development Programme to help us to all strike the right balance between more flexible working and developing our team culture.
The Staff Development Programme is compulsory for all LBB staff, whether they are moving to Colindale or not. Partners are also able to attend this free workshop.
There are courses scheduled throughout February, March and April 2019, so make sure you book your place via the links below.
- Tuesday 12 Mar (Sha,arei Tsedek Synagogue) – AM session and PM session
- Tuesday 26 Mar (RAF Museum) – AM session and PM session
- Tuesday 23 Apr (Sha,arei Tsedek Synagogue) – AM session and PM session
- Tuesday 30 Apr (RAF Museum) – AM session and PM session
The course provides the opportunity for you to learn more about flexible working, the practicalities and staying resilient through change. You’ll discuss how to develop and maintain your team culture and creating team principles so that we can change how we work. There will also be the opportunity to explore the ways in which you can use technology to communicate with your teams and managers, and how focusing on outcomes can support you in working remotely.
If you have any questions, please contact the Corporate Learning and Development team.
As well as the Staff development programme, to equip you with right knowledge there is a range of online and face to face training available now (see below).

Classroom learning is still an important element of any effective personal development. Take time out of your day to focus, connect with your peers and invest in yourself: it’s important for you to build up your knowledge, skills and behaviours.
