Learning events calendar

The Leadership Academy holds regular learning events for civil servants.

Some events are specifically tailored to people making the transition from one grade to the next. Another set of events will help you develop a fully engaged style of leadership that really connects with people. A third learning offer will develop your understanding of the core Civil Service ‘disciplines’ that underpin the work of the organisation, including politics, finance, commercial, digital and project delivery.

All of our learning opportunities allow networking with peers and experts, as well as helping to build relationships to encourage learning across departments, professions and agencies.
