Commercial skills

The public sector is becoming more commercial in its outlook and practices. Partnership arrangements, joint ventures, shared services and private sector contracts are now part and parcel of the public sector landscape. Our commercial skills training can give you the commercial acumen needed to drive your organisation forward.

All of our learning carries CPD hours and if you don’t see the topic you’re interested in, we can work with you to develop content tailored to your needs.
