Growing our own talent

Wherever possible, the NPA promotes from within, and offers internal and external development opportunities to achieve this.

The NPA believes that it will obtain the greatest performance through a systematic approach to developing employees and a clear focus on performance. This is managed through appropriate learning and development interventions that are aligned to the business strategy. Through the NPA learning and development strategy and performance management process:

  • Employees are supported in the development of skills to enable effectiveness in their role and improve job performance, satisfaction and motivation.
  • Employees should identify and plan, with their line managers, any development needs and the associated requirements. As part of the personal development plan employees should agree with their manager how the activity will improve their performance, how the learning will be consolidated and how it will link to delivery of their objectives and/or development objectives.
  • Learning is valued and supports continuing personal and professional development.
