Recommendation 26

Values and Culture in Fire and Rescue Services

Recommendation 26: 

By 1 October 2023, as a precursor to the development of the College of Fire and Rescue, chief fire officers and the National Fire Chiefs Council should work with the Home Office to consider how they can improve the training and support they offer to staff in management and leadership development. This should include authority members in respect of their assurance leadership roles and should ensure that opportunities are offered fairly across all staff groups.​ 

RBFRS action: Various routes are available supporting individual and leadership development as well as a bursary scheme. A gap analysis of the leading and developing people is being prepared which will help identify additional activities or support and will feed into our action plans. A member development strategy is regularly reviewed and available on our website.   

Action: In progress
