Training and Development highlights

National Grid's Training and Development programme is supported by "Our Academy" – a "one stop shop" connecting employees to the right learning and development opportunities. Our Academy will support your growth, attract others to join us and enable the business to succeed.


National Grid's Development Policy describes key principles, frameworks and processes that govern our approach to learning and development. The policy applies to all employees of National Grid and all types of training provided by Our Academy; technical, behavioural, leadership and business capabilities.


Employees are responsible for their own development as an ongoing, proactive, purposeful process where they continuously seek opportunities to improve their skills and knowledge, and reflect upon their learning before, during and after a learning experience and actively looking for ways to apply the learning for improved performance.


Line Managers and Supervisors are responsible for holding ongoing, honest development discussions with employees regarding strengths and development requirements within their role, and ensure that employees have opportunities in their jobs to apply, practice and reflect upon new behaviours and perspectives.
