Local government and authorities have diverse work-forces, and are often challenged when managing career development and training obligations. We have established a School of Local Government with courses that have been designed to meet those needs of all employees – Administration Staff, Management Staff and all levels of Operational Works Staff.

Global Training Institute is a Registered Training Organisation, with an impeccable reputation for delivering local government courses and council training.

A Local Government qualification from Global Training Institute is recognised Australia-wide, and is highly regarded internationally. All qualifications are accredited and in line with AQF standards. It will boost the productivity of your staff and help them to achieve their career goals.

Local Government courses are available at Global Training Institute. Local Government courses are valuable in equipping your Local Government with vital skills.

They are practical qualifications that are suitable for staff of all levels, including Administrators, Supervisors and Managers, and they can be completed with the flexibility of online, online with residential workshops, and through in-house training.

Importantly, we recognise that your team members may have practical experience in some of the subjects that make up a Qualification course, and we make allowances for this prior knowledge wherever possible. In fact, just like many of our students, you might just need your staff members to have that ‘piece of paper’ that confirms their knowledge and experience.

Contact us for more information regarding Local Government courses. 

The diversity of our training courses, and the flexible ways in which they can be undertaken, are a reflection of Councils’ needs in the twenty-first century – from ‘soft-skill‘ courses like customer contact, teamwork, and leadership, through to management and civil work courses.

Global Training Institute‘s trainers are hands-on with a wealth of business and management work experience. Through interaction with many different Councils they bring you, your management and staff, fresh concepts and practical strategies that can be applied immediately to current work situations.
