Training and development is a key part of the Graduate Management scheme and dependent on your specific role you will have access to a wide range of programmes which includes:

  • Corporate induction
  • Local induction
  • Action based learning
  • Support from mentors
  • Graduate development days
  • Masterclasses
  • Attending executive management meetings
  • Managing to Inspire: SCW's in-house training and development programme
  • Formal professional qualifications e.g. Mary Seacole programmeCIPS qualifications
  • Prince II
  • Shadowing
  • Graduate Management Scheme Competency Framework

All of this means that in no time at all, you’ll develop the technical and leadership skills you'll need to become a line manager with responsibility. This really is a general management scheme, with hands-on business training.

There’s also the opportunity to specialise if you find an area of the business you’re particularly interested in.

What does an SCW graduate look like after completion of the 2 year scheme?

Our Graduate Expectations Profile pulls together SCW-related knowledge, skills and expertise to give an indication of some of the wider elements you will have covered by the end of the scheme.

During your regular one to one's and personal development plan conversations with your careers managers we will use this profile alongside your competency and values behaviour frameworks to map your current competencies and pull together a plan for bridging skills gaps, to ultimately work towards your target job roles on completion of our two year SCW Graduate Management Scheme.
