Executive Programme in Strategic Commissioning (5 day course)

Date
Monday 29th September 2014
Description
29, 30 September and 01 October 2014 and 27, 28 October 2014. This Executive Programme in Strategic Commissioning focuses directly on the current challenge of coping with public service funding cuts at a time of rising service needs and expectations.

Certificate in Overview and Scrutiny (3 day course)

Date
Monday 6th - Wednesday 8th October 2014
Description
This three day programme works through the stages and techniques of the scrutiny process, and the ways in which it may be used both to hold executives to account and to develop policy. It may be used as an induction and training in the principles of good scrutiny for those who are new or relatively new to the topic (including an update on issues for scrutiny raised by new legislation and the Coalition's approach to local government). It will also assist those with experience of scrutiny to develop their skills and improve their practice.

Description
Written by Chris Game. MPs from all parties have called in recent weeks for parliament to be reconvened to enable them to debate the ongoing crisis in Iraq. They have met with unbending opposition.
