Training, learning and development

Argyll and Bute Council is committed to supporting employees to acquire the skills, knowledge and expertise that they need to provide our services to residents.  We regard investment in our employees’ learning as crucial and fundamental to this and we commit a significant amount of time to employees’ learning and development.  Training is delivered in a variety of ways – formal qualifications, on the job learning, and online learning through our extensive range of LEON courses which are flexible and can be accessed at a time that suits employees, whether at work or at home.  We have a significant number of courses delivered online that have been developed by subject matter experts within the Council, tailored for the needs and situations of employees working in our geographically dispersed area. You can find guidance notes for using LEON here.


If you would like to discuss any aspect of our learning and development, please contact us at trainingcentre@argyll-bute.gov.uk and we will be happy to share our experiences.

Please also contact us at trainingcentre@argyll-bute.gov.uk if you have a training need for yourself or your employees in these areas and we will discuss whether we can help you fill your skills gap, or alternatively if you are accredited as an assessor or verifier in any of the subjects and would be interested in helping us deliver our qualifications.
