Abstract One of the key priorities of our team is to invest in our staff, and create an environment that supports continual learning and development. Recognising a gap in entry-level opportunities for those seeking a career in Public Health, the team in Southwark developed a unique training programme to support the development of the future workforce. In 2017, we developed and piloted a training programme aimed at new graduates with limited work experience who are considering a postgraduate degree or career in Public Health. Fellows have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in local government during a part-time, short-term placement. Following a successful pilot, we launched the Public Health Foundation Programme in early 2018. The four-month placement provides a broad range of experiences, allowing the fellow to:develop an understanding of Public Health in an operational environmentdevelop core Public Health skills and provide operational and technical support to the department in delivering varied projects and programmessupport the equitable and evidence-based delivery of council, NHS, and other services to promote health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities locally Initial feedback on the programme has been positive:A number of fellows completing the programme have gone on to obtain substantive roles in Public Health teams across London.Alongside providing a learning opportunity for those considering a Public Health career, the programme supports the development of our existing workforce by providing management experience to our Policy Officers. A full evaluation of the programme is planned during 2019. External funding details
