Learning and Development

Colchester Borough Council is committed to the learning and development of employees.

We encourage more than one method of training for individuals both in terms of their professional development and personal growth.

The Council is proud to have Investors in People (IIP) status, as well as having won a Colchester District Business Award for staff training and development.

We offer a variety of options for learning and development, including:

  • e-Learning - an online tool to assist your learning in a practical way
  • Colchester Learning Managers - managers have an opportunity to complete a modular management course, accredited to the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM)
  • coaching and mentoring
  • traditional courses, seminars and conferences
  • assistance with professional qualification courses and membership - 50% contribution towards your membership subscription to a professional body, if this is an integral part of your role with the Council
