NWLC ANNUAL TRAINING SURVEY – COMING SOON
We will be launching our annual training survey around the middle of May to see what you think about the programme we offer through our partner firms. We hope to gather your views about how the Consortium training is delivered, where it is delivered and your suggestions and preferences for future training topics. The survey will inform the design of the 2015/2016 programme which will run from September to June 2016 so watch out for the e-mail inviting your views and we’d love to hear from you!

Watch out for more details of our plans for the 2015 event as they emerge in future E-Bulletins.
Your Solicitors Framework ends at the end of March 2016. Consultation with our current partner firms has been completed so now it’s the turn of all our member organisations to have their say about how we should proceed. All Heads of Service will be receiving a note of the Management Board’s recommendations for the proposed future plans and the Board look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions before a final decision is made. The outcome will be reported to all through a future Bulletin in the summer.
Don’t forget to let us know when you have new colleagues joining your organisation (and leaving too of course) All you need to do is drop a quick e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with the detail of the staff changes and we’ll take it from there!
Free Consortium healthchecks are available to member authorities to spread the word about the benefits of membership of the Consortium, explain how the website can be used and basically do a bit of a healthcheck as to what each authority uses the Consortium for etc and how best we can assist.
