Our next discovery session is about devolution in the United Kingdom and the opportunities and challenges it presents to Civil Servants.
Civil Servants should understand the history and background to devolution and how it has significantly changed the way in which Government operates. There is not just one legislature or Government in the UK, there are four democratically elected Governments and four Parliaments and Assemblies for the different parts of the UK. This has implications for how Civil Servants across all the administrations do their jobs.
This session will provide an introduction to what you need to know about working with the devolved administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, why it is important and how to find out more.
When: 21st November 2016
Where: Conference rooms 7 & 8, 2 Rivergate, Temple Quay, Bristol, BS1 6HA
Time: 10:30 to 12:30
