Training & Development

Delivering Training and Development opportunities is a core focus for LOCSU, with the strategic aim to inspire, identify and develop the talent of today for the benefit of the optical sector tomorrow.

LOCSU offers a wide range of courses for LOCs and their members, including facilitated induction courses aimed at newer LOC members, an annual Leadership Skills Programme and a range of training courses for extended primary care services to support the implementation of LOCSU’s pathways.

Both the Leadership Skills Programme and training in extended primary care services are delivered in partnership with the Wales Optometry Postgraduate Education Centre (WOPEC).

Training and Development information and resources are available in two areas of the website:

NHS England has published a competencies and qualification summary table to help local commissioners and all those involved in planning care better understand what each profession is able to do with their core competency.
