About Maudsley Learning

Maudsley Learning is an innovative workforce development team within South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, part of one of the world’s most renowned mental healthcare organisations. Our mission is to improve people’s lives through the highest quality of mental health and well-being education.

We design and deliver training programmes and education services to meet the continuing professional development needs of individuals in the healthcare workforce, but also of many others including colleagues in social services, policing, schools and in the private sector. Building positive relationships with other organisations is supremely important to us, as we aim to spread good practices around supporting mental health and well-being.

We deliver high-quality learning experiences in both traditional and innovative educational modalities thanks to our expertise and agility. Our access to a range of subject matter expertise is second to none via the global centres of excellence in South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) and our university partners, the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN), King’s College London.

We have published numerous peer-reviewed academic papers and won multiple awards, including British Medical Journal Education Team of the Year 2018.

About South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM)

Maudsley Learning is the education and training arm of South London and Maudsley NHS FT. South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) provide the widest range of NHS mental health services in the UK as well as substance misuse services for people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. We work closely with the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN), King's College London, and are part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre. There are very few organisations in the world that have such wide-ranging capabilities working with mental illness. Our scope is unique because it is built on three major foundations: care and treatment, science and research, and training.

SLaM employs around 5000 staff and serves a local population of 1.1 million people. We have more than 230 services including inpatient wards, outpatient and community services. Currently, provide inpatient care for approximately 5,300 people each year and treat more than 45,000 patients in the community in Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham, and Southwark; as well as substance misuse services for residents of Bexley, Bromley, and Greenwich.

By coming to work at SLaM, you will gain experience of being part of an organisation with a rich history and international reputation in mental health care. You will have access to professional development and learning opportunities and have the chance to work alongside people who are world leaders in their field. SLaM delivered more than 14,000 training experiences in 2014; providing an extensive range of learning opportunities for staff at all levels. In addition, our working relationship with King's Health Partners allows those working at the Trust to get involved in academic research.
