Our Training Services

Here at Breckland, the investment in our people's development is a key priority; we want to train and develop people well because we know it's what they want - to further their careers, to become a better version of themselves and to play a part in a growing and changing Council.  What's in it for us? Well, it makes sense for us to have teams of engaged, talented, dynamic and high performing people. 

From day one, you'll have everything you need, from initial induction to orientation to Corporate Induction with the Chief Executive and Executive Management Team.  We feel it's important for you to settle in well and never feel lost in your transition into the Council.  


Prior to your first day you will be sent a staff induction pack along with a link to access some of our policies. These will allow you to start gaining an understanding of Breckland Council and how it functions alongside answering some of those other important questions beforehand.

On your first day, your team will take you round to make introductions, give you a tour of the building including the fire evacuation procedure and provide you with a work plan for the first week or so to help you settle in and find your feet.

Additional Training

We pride ourselves in the delivery of high quality training and development; with two in-house trainers, we offer 1-2-1 coaching and a variety of courses which can be tailor-made to suit yours and the Council's needs. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide creative and unique training solutions.

As part of our transformation plan, our training team work hard to ensure a robust training programme is available, with advance notice for staff so that every opportunity is available to attend.
