Welcome to Learning and Development

Welcome to the Learning and Development (SISTAD) site for officers, Territorial Envoys and employees of The Salvation Army in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.  Here you will find information about the learning opportunities and programmes that have been designed to enable and support your ongoing development.

We are working hard on getting our new website fully operational.  If you have any questions, please do get in touch with the SISTAD team at William Booth College, or contact your Regional Learning and Development Officer.

If you are looking for more information or would like to clarify any details, please contact us at [email protected]

Aligned to the William Booth College mission of resourcing, empowering, and developing people for effective participation in God’s mission, our Learning and Development (SISTAD) team exists to:

  • Empower individuals through fostering a learning culture,
  • Develop and nurture relationships to identify learning requirements,
  • Create and manage accessible learning materials, environments and experiences.

We are guided by The Salvation Army values of integrity, accountability, compassion, passion, respect and boldness.
