7 April 2016

Today we are delivering the last of our training courses for the 2016 spring series. We close with the ever popular ‘Overview of the Legislative Process’ with Tom Brake MP delivering an interesting as well as informative guest speaker session.  

This season of Open Courses has been as successful as ever, we have delivered over 30 training courses to a wide variety of delegates from Private and Public sector and also numerous Charities. Not only do we offer training on Parliament and Government; like our ‘Overview of Parliament’ course which is delivered by the Rt. Hon Jacqui Smith. We offer numerous learning and development courses, including Writing Skills, Notes Taking Skills and Speech Writing. 

If you have been on one of Dods Trainings Open Courses you will know that we deliver these to a high standard and use relevant guest speakers and associate trainers with a vast knowledge of their specialist subject. A lot of delegates have said that they appreciate their knowledge as well as their anecdotes as it brings the training to life!

We can now say that we have successfully developed 50 new courses with the help from our very experienced pool of training associates. These are due to take place this summer (starting on the 3rd May) at a brand new training venue! So if you are keen to learn or even refresh your skills, then take a look at our Training courses on our website and book your space now!
