Training and Learning

LLST provides training opportunities to benefit and support advice agencies, specifically tailored and targeted to our Centres of Excellence.

We organise training on relevant and needed topics for our Centres of Excellence agencies. Where we are not best placed to offer this training, we arrange this through other providers’ by offering subsidised training to COEx through partners such as LAPG and LCN.

Shared learning across the sector is key to improving and developing more efficient and sustainable practices. We are proud to share resources, learning, and ideas both through our London Specialist Advice Forum, and with external bodies across the sector.
