Annual Training Survey – They think its all over…it is now!

Many thanks to those of you who responded to our Annual Training Survey. The results and feedback it provides will be considered by the Consortium Management Board and Steering Group and will inform the build of the new Training Programme for 2017/18 which will then be published to the website for you to see what’s coming up.

Consortium Annual Training Event – Hold the Date

We are pleased to announce that this year’s Annual Training Event will take place on Tuesday October 3rd at the St Helens Rugby Stadium in St Helens.

We have our main morning speaker booked already and are busy finalising the rest of the event programme with our partner firm support coming this year from Hill Dickinson.

The draft event programme will be published to the website in July BUT you can make your bookings now through the Consortium website.

Why wait?

You can read all about our main morning speaker, Rene Barrett on the courses page
of the website.

The event is FREE to delegates from Consortium member organisations. We look forward to seeing you there.

An opportunity to help each other?

As you may have read in earlier E-Bulletins your Management Board are looking to introduce
a tool through the website to support member organisations in assisting each other when they either don’t have the current capacity or specialist skills to undertake a piece of or a particular area of work.

All Consortium organisation leads have recently been contacted about this development with a view to them indicating whether or not, and if yes, to what extent they would be prepared to offer their legal services to other member organisations.

We’ll be updating you on this new initiative in the coming weeks and months.
