THIS TRAINING SESSION WILL BE DELIVERED VIA MICROSOFT TEAMS - YOU WILL RECEIVE A MEETING INVITE SHORTLY BEFORE THE TRAINING COURSE.
This one-day, remotely-delivered, training course provides excellent foundation knowledge and awareness of how to manage contracts with external providers successfully in order to extract better value-for-money and deliver the desired commercial outcomes. Competence in this area is equally about how to manage intelligently, knowing when to consult with professional colleagues especially when undertaking complex processes such as contractual change, recognising the key drivers that will improve supplier performance and understanding the role and importance of robust contract governance.
The course is ideal for individuals who have accountability for managing third party service providers within the council (including budget holders, contract managers, relationship managers, service delivery managers and procurement practitioners), as well as those that are relatively new to the procurement function.
Please note there is £100 charge for all delegates to attend this course (invoiced to North Somerset and B&NES delegates, and recharged to departments for South Glos delegates).
This training has been commissioned by South Gloucestershire Council’s LGBTQ+ staff equality group and is provided by Mermaids, who have been supporting transgender, nonbinary and gender-diverse children, young people, and their families since 1995.
Mermaids is one of the UK’s leading LGBTQ+ charities, empowering thousands of people with its secure online communities, local community groups, helpline services, web resources, events and residential weekends.
Mermaids seek to educate and inform wider society on gender identity by helping professionals accommodate and reassure gender-diverse young people.
As training spaces are limited to 15 places per course, we respectfully ask that only one representative per team or school for example, book a place. If demand is high we will explore options of putting on further training sessions.
These 50 minute coaching sessions with coaches will assist council staff in coming up with strategies and action plans to maintain and build their wellbeing and resilience. Unlike counselling which provides a safe space to explore worries and concerns, these confidential coaching sessions will help staff come up with individual plans to help them build their resilience, understand what they can do to enhance their wellbeing and overcome current and future obstacles. There are activities and exercises that wellbeing coaches can also give people to work through in their own time if they would find it useful.
Please note these sessions will be delivered by skype or telephone. Your coach will contact you to confirm the best method for you.
