Commercial Academy

Providing the skills that people working in the sector have told us they need.

Commercialism is one of the most prominent and urgent topics in the public sector and, particularly, in local government. 8/10 authorities say they would have to raise tax or cut services without their commercial activities – but just 4% believe they have the skills they need for the future.

 

The Commercial Academy from Human Engine provides the skills that people working in the sector have told us they need. It’s open to everyone and many of our programmes have courses to accommodate all levels of learner – from beginners looking to develop their understanding to seasoned practitioners who want access to the latest thinking. What’s more, learning doesn’t stay in the classroom – delegates will have access to a network of likeminded peers to share knowledge and ideas with, supported by unique networking events as part of our ‘Commercial Community’.

 

Have a browse of our upcoming courses and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We also offer all course with an in-house option. If you're thinking of registering five or more people, we'd be happy to come to you. If you can’t see what you’re looking for or want to talk about your training needs, drop us an email at info@human-engine.co.uk
