Don’t want to come into the city for training? Can’t find the appropriate training to suit your needs? In-house training is a great way to develop your team's capability, improve engagement and increase performance. We can create a tailored training solution ensuring value for your investment - when & where you need it.


When a team trains together, the ongoing discussions around the new knowledge acquired and consistency in skills provides a return to both the individual and the team.


Alternatively, have a chat with us about hosting an existing course at your council! We can invite your neighbouring council’s to attend and divide the agreed fee between those in attendance.
