The council has developed and enhanced its vocational qualifications training and development programme. This is leading to managers working and acting more efficiently, resulting in greater efficiencies at a time when public sector budgets are much tighter. The approach has been endorsed and implemented from the top down, with the council’s chief executive and corporate management team playing a fundamental role in its development and delivery.
This has included a member of the senior team acting as champion and internal expert for each area of learning and ensuring that their organisational needs are being met.
“Our emphasis on vocational qualifications is reaping benefits for the council, the staff and as a result the citizens of Flintshire” Heather Johnson, Learning and Development Manager
