Welcome to our Local Authorities programme

Essential Legal Training for Local Authority Staff

Equipping local authority staff with the specialist knowledge and skills to handle difficult situations with confidence.

Here at La Touche Training we 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.

All our courses are delivered online via Virtual Learning at this time.

Our virtual classrooms are easy to navigate providing you with access to face-to-face real time learning. The technology allows us to deliver the same high-quality content using great features including group conversation, peer to peer learning, practical exercises, case studies, role-play, interactive white boards and breakout rooms. This requires no software download and is simple, secure and easy to use, enabling your staff to receive the training, but remotely.
