Councils are currently faced with the great challenge of improving services whilst delivering on budget cuts. Delivering on this challenge also comes at a time of great internal change as councils face their own restructures and financial pressures. At this time of change it is important that effective learning programmes are in place to create stability and aid cost savings.
Virtual College has worked with a number of public sector organisations to develop online courses that are designed to be cost-effective and flexible in order to adapt to the agile nature of the public sector coupled with reduced budgets during this turbulent period. Online compliance training can ensure clear, consistent messages across all council departments. Instant online reporting compliance is easily managed and standards are maintained despite changing environments.
