Case Study - Staff Training and Development

North Wales Police

North Wales Police closely monitors the uptake and completion of learning by sexual orientation. Information collected through this exercise is analysed and used to identify existing barriers and develop an action plan to address them.

Key members of Enfys are trained to mentor and coach LGB&T staff through a force-wide scheme. Mentors are profiled and publicised both within the network and across the force. In addition, the force runs a separate reverse mentoring scheme called ‘A Day in Your Shoes’ which has provided a number of Enfys members with improved knowledge on areas of work that may be of professional interest to them.

Measures are in place to ensure that staff contributions to staff network activities are recognised and rewarded. The chair of Enfys provides appraisals for members of the network that perform formal duties during the reporting period, thereby encouraging participation.
