Discovery Sessions are a series of interactive talks and learning events, each lasting a couple of hours. Colleagues have the opportunity to hear about cross-departmental subjects and issues that affect all of us as Civil Servants. A list of the next sessions to be held in the north west of England is included below. We use our popular Discovery Sessions programme as a way to offer bite-sized learning for our Civil Servants. You can go to a 2-hour learning event and meet people from across government with the same issues and interests as you. Different sessions cover specific topics.
We’re pleased to introduce more new topics this spring. It's also a great opportunity to watch our Civil Service Local promotional video.
