GOVERNMENT

Local, national, international

Whether you're working in local, national or international government, we offer a range of training courses, workshops and services designed for the sector - from our hugely popular dealing with difficult people sessions which are ideal for officers struggling with awkward colleagues or customers through to social media and broadcast media training for elected representatives such as MPs and councillors.

We’ve got literally hundreds of clients in local government from the very biggest authorities such as Birmingham and Wolverhampton to the smallest or furthest flung like Devon and Aberdeenshire. And nationally our clients include all the main government departments in Englands including the Ministry of Justice and the Department for Environment, the Assembly Government in Wales and the Parliament in Scotland. They use us because:

We’re brilliant at what we do and we’re great value for money.

A bold statement, but after nearly a quarter of a century working with councillors, officers, MPs, civil servants and even the occasional High Court judge we know what we're talking about. And we know the specific needs and demands of the sector inside out.

We also know from experience just how hard it is to find the money for training and development (especially after a decade of austerity) so our prices have been frozen with half day in-house sessions starting at just £500 – that’s under £50 per delegate.
