Rossendale Borough council staff have received management training from 'expert tutors' of Burnley College.

Tutors from the college have been leading tried-and-tested, management and professional development training sessions with senior managers at Rossendale Borough Council.

Staff development manager, Sarah Condren, who led the training, said: “Our training is aimed at maximising the potential of every individual manager within the council’s senior management team, as well as the team as a whole. Everyone taking part is already experienced and successful but are driven to be even better – which is great to work with and offers some amazing opportunities for development.

“This training is offering them a true 360-degree view of how they operate together, how they communicate and how they can take their working relationships to the highest possible level, to benefit the council and the communities they serve.”

Training has also been led by Sarah Crossley, head of A Levels at the College, and Will Shepherd, Business Lecturer and management guru, who has worked with some of the UK’s top brands.

A recent training session also included Diane Burridge, Chief Executive Officer of Moneyline, who shared her own professional experience to further bring the learning to life.

Chief executive of Rossendale Council, Neil Shaw said: “Rossendale Council recognises the importance in investing in our staff to ensure the continuing development of their skills so they're able to do their jobs to the best of their abilities.

“We engaged Burnley College specifically to support the development of our Corporate Management Team. Their support and input has been creative, constructively challenging and has enabled us to grow as a team. We’ve used their facilitation to gain greater insight into how we work as individuals and how we can improve as a senior management team.”
