We do this by holding free shared learning events, webinars and podcasts.

They enable delegates to share and learn from each other:

  • on the day
  • remotely through social media 
  • through continued discussions post-event, and
  • by accessing our event outputs and guides.

Our programme of shared learning events focusses on topics that are common across public services. These topics align with many of our studies and contribute towards our organisation’s strategic objectives.

They also underpin the ways of working and goals of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 [opens in new window]Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 [opens in new window] and the Environment (Wales) Act 2016 [opens in new window].

We recognise that organisations are at different stages of design and delivery of public services. This is an important focus for our events.

We believe in adapting not adopting – there’s no need to reinvent the wheel but equally, one size won’t fit all.
