Local Government is facing a time of unprecedented change like never seen before Local Authorities are being forced to find new ways to deliver more for less due to severe constraints on funding. There is a need to produce services that offer people greater choice and control over their daily lives and to engage actively with the public to develop them. Tackling these issues can only be done in conjunction with re-training and re-motivating your staff to cope with the challenges this presents.

Your workforce also needs to be able to adapt not just to any immediate changes but to be flexible enough to continually adapt to any roles that may be required in the future.

For the first time, the Local Authority Challenge is coming to the South East!First launched in the Eastern region in 2013, the challenge is now delivered across 6 different regions in England. Created by Breckland Training Services and delivered in partnership with South East Employers, the challenge offers a rare opportunity for aspiring managers across local government to gain exposure to issues outside of their normal working lives and give them a taste of what senior management is like!

The Challenge is open to teams of six people from any area of local authority workl. Delegates will spend the day as the management team of a fictional local authority, encountering many of the tasks that a real corporate team would deal with. They'll have to work as a team, with neighbouring councils and with partner organisations to deliver a new strategy for the council. They'll have to choose which areas to prioritise, deal with politically sensitive issues and still keep their focus on how to give the public the best services with limited resources.

If you would like to book of for further information, please direct emails to or telephone 01362 656282.
