Learning & Development Services for Local Authorities
At TTC we understand the unique set of challenges Local Authorities face when it comes to training and developing their employees.
With around 1 in 5 (5.5 million) of the total working population employed in the public sector, 2.6 million of these in Local Government, training and development needs to be relevant to the widest range of abilities and job roles. Furthermore, as job opportunities in the public sector decline, at the same time as opportunities are increasing in the private sector, Local Authorities need to develop and retain their best staff more than ever.
TTC is the UK’s leading provider of Learning & Development Services for Local Authorities and private sector businesses and organisations that recognise the value of improving personal and professional knowledge, accountability and responsibility.
We provide the training and the tools to help successfully unlock personal and team potential to ensure greater outcomes and positive impact on communities inside and outside your Local Authority – which is why our programmes are delivered to more than 50,000 people every year.
