Training and Development

Training and developing your staff and sharing knowledge can lead to better outcomes and more consistent impact. We offer training and development options to suit your organisation. This ranges from short courses covering key aspects of health and social care provision to longer, tailormade development programmes for senior leaders as well as coaching. Choose from our off-the shelf Commissioning Course or Team Manager Development Programme, or let us work with you to design a bespoke training opportunity to suit the needs of your organisation. We are currently delivering all of our courses and workshops via online learning activities.

Liam Mawhinney, Children’s Business Change Commissioning Manager, Leicester City Council said,
“Most of us don’t grow up and think ‘I want to become a commissioner’, but five years after leaving university I found myself in the role and asking myself, am I doing the job correctly and is there more that I need to know? The IPC Commissioning course answered these questions and helped build my confidence in my new role.
I really enjoyed the opportunity to connect with other people and learn about new approaches and theories to commissioning. I heard about practical examples, and how they have been applied across the county and worked through real local problems with other learners."
