Our extensive knowledge and understanding of the public sector has lead us to provide training courses for thousands of public sector organisations, including NHS Trusts, Universities, Local Councils, Fire Services and Police Forces.

Your experience

Our training courses cover a wide range of areas, including; strategic thinking, presentation skills, data visualisation, data protection, verbal communication and other personal development skills.

Each course provides an exclusive opportunity to hear from senior experts and professionals in the field that contribute to our events, including prominent parliamentarians, civil servants and academics.

In addition, our training courses offer you the chance to learn from exemplary case studies, engage in informative Q & A sessions and receive beneficial networking and training opportunities, which can be practically applied once you complete the course.

On each of our courses, the number of delegates is limited to ensure there is quality interaction with trainers and excellent opportunities to network with other delegates. All of our courses are CPD-certified and we are an accredited APMG supplier.

We also provide bespoke, in-house training for larger groups or teams with more specific requirements. Our dedicated in-house team will work closely with you throughout the design and delivery process to ensure your in-house course provides the highest quality and value.
