Co-operative Councils and their communities will benefit from an innovative training programme thanks to an agreement signed with the Co-operative College, a leading provider of education and training across the co-operative sector.

The CCIN Network has committed to developing an in-depth induction programme with the College that will be rolled out to new and existing members throughout 2020. This will encourage all members to work together and learn, sharing and developing innovative new approaches to make a significant difference across their communities.

Hosted online, the training will focus on co-operative values and principles, exploring how these might be applied to Co-operative Councils. The package will examine a wide range of topics including governance and sustainability, with good practice examples included throughout.

Further stages will follow, with the option to develop bespoke training tailored to each individual council’s needs. An eight-week consultation and design period will commence shortly, ensuring that the training targets core areas and meets the diverse needs of the network. 

With over 100 years of experience in delivering innovative training solutions across complex organisations, the College is the perfect partner to develop a suite of training materials that will ensure the network continues to go from strength to strength.
