About our courses

Our trainers regularly attend legal seminars and conferences to ensure that they are fully aware and up to date regarding legislative changes and changes due to case law provisions. This is then reflected in the training sessions and updated.

We also work closely with the Cabinet Office and CCS and any new guidance via Procurement Policy Notes (PPNs) is also reflected and updated in the sessions.
