IPC offers several short, four-day short courses covering key aspects of public care provision. We also provide the option of longer, broader development programmes for managers. Alternatively, we can work with you to design a bespoke training programme to suit the precise needs of your organisation.

Four-day short courses

We deliver short courses as either 'open courses' that individuals can book onto or we can deliver an in-house, bespoke course for your organisation. Our short courses can be accredited by Oxford Brookes University. Members of the IPC partnership get a discount on the cost of our short courses.

Our popular commissioning course supports commissioners in public care organisations to implement the national agenda and develop good commissioning practice. We also deliver short courses for providers of care and support, and courses that focus on performance management, leading quality improvement and service redesign and change.
