Cabinet Office Commissioning Academy relaunched by social enterprise
Thursday April 14th, 2016
The social enterprise the Public Service Transformation Academy has been awarded a concession contract to run the Cabinet Office Commissioning Academy, a leadership programme for public sector commissioners.
The Commissioning Academy aims to help those who work on defining policy, shaping public service provision or allocating resources for services to citizens, to get the best outcome.
The Commissioning Academy was originally launched in 2012 by former Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude. Over 1,100 senior leaders in central and local government and across public services have already attended the development programmes run by the Academy.
Programmes take place over 3 to 6 days. They involve some of the country’s leading experts as speakers to stimulate debates and help participants develop the skills and confidence to address the challenge of public service transformation.
The next programme starts on 9 June with tailored regional programmes available from 1 May 2016.
John Manzoni, Chief Executive of the Civil Service said:
“The Commissioning Academy was designed to help commissioners transform public services and deliver better outcomes in a tighter financial environment.
“With the new concession launched today and taking over the resources built up by the Public Service Transformation Network, the Academy will continue to promote and deliver public service transformation policy and enable lives to be improved across the country.”
