Learning & Development for Local Authorities

Local Authorities in Ireland August 29, 2023

La Touche Training offers specific legal training for government bodies and local authorities.

Would you like to improve the quality of your or your team’s reports, investigations or job performance? Are you having issues understanding where you stand in terms of doing your job because of certain regulations or legislation? Do you want your findings to stand up better to scrutiny, increase successful outcomes and reduce appeals and losses?

La Touche Training have over three decades of experience in training local authority staff from every local government body in the country. We offer a wide variety of in-house legal training courses, tailored to the exact roles and functions of local government professionals.

Our panel of trainers are highly trained experienced lawyers who understand the particular issues, concerns and challenges facing local authority staff and the skills they require to carry out their work effectively.

We have migrated our courses during the pandemic and now offer a virtual learning delivery option as well as face to face engagements. We do in-house training for groups from a specific local authority as well as public dates for individuals to sign up to from across different authorities.
