The proposed training programme for 2023/24 is based on the following themes :

Contract support : this is based on rolling out further modules of the successful NEC4 programme

Carbon support : an online training programme is being developed in partnership with Cynnal Cymru which will focus on Carbon Literacy, Carbon Management and Biodiversity

Legal support : proposals are being developed to support a Mock Trial scenario (potentially based on Service Strikes) and a CDM Workshop focusing on legal implications

Political support :  this would entail a 2023/24 Politics and Infrastructure Overview arranged by our public affairs consultants

Social Value support : proposals for training in social value and the launch of contractor specific education resources are in development with partners.
