Curriculum Updates

The demands of delivering modern-day public services mean that civil servants are continually asked to work in different ways, incorporating new ideas, approaches and technologies. It’s therefore vital that the training we make available to all civil servants also continues to evolve.

That’s why we’re constantly working with our consortium partners to extend and refine our training offer. As new demands are made of civil servants and their departments, we’ll keep deploying new courses and programmes to help develop the skills needed to meet those emerging demands.

New ISO certification courses now available

A host of new ISO certification courses have been added to the Prospectus Online. These courses are available via Knowledge Academy, a new addition to the KPMG-led consortium that supports the GSCU. ISO certification is how organisations demonstrate their compliance with internationally recognised standards in areas such as health and safety, information security management and environmental management.

Foundation level courses are now available across seven different ISO standards. These provide a comprehensive introduction to what each standard requires and the techniques that can be used to ensure compliance. Further courses allow learners to be certified as an internal auditor, lead auditor or lead implementer for each of the various standards.
