We are part of a wider cross-charity mentoring scheme, allowing you to broaden your skillset with support both within the organisation and across the sector.


Here at RNIB, we believe learning is for everyone - and we are committed to develop through progression. Our Apprentices include not only new starters but Chief Officer level staff. There are over 85 diverse apprenticeships ranging from Accountancy Taxation Professional (Level 7/Masters); Social Worker (Integrated Degree) (Level 6); Marketing Executive (Level 4) and Engineering Fitter (Level 3) all of which offer 20% of working time for learning.

As an employee you also have access to our Central Development Fund to attend other external development like a training course on a specialism, a seminar run by your professional body or a conference.

Organisational Development concentrates on so much more than just learning so you should also find us working hard on other activities like Wellbeing, for example, to enable you to reach your full potential here.
