Corporate Peer Challenge – Peer Training Days 2020

Many thanks for your interest in our training events.


Currently we have two Corporate peer training days booked and are looking into more regional events for the coming year. The dates are:

22 January 2020 | London

23 April 2020 | London

These training days will cover:

  • The current peer challenge offer, and how the peer challenge approach is evolving and being used by authorities – helping to raise awareness and ensure understanding about the offer
  • The role of peers in delivering the corporate peer challenge, including the key expectations and responsibilities – ensuring that peers are ready and confident to be part of a peer challenge team

If you are interested in attending these days, please email peer.application@local.gov.uk and they will send more details.


We are always looking for new peers with a wide range of skills, experienced senior local government officers willing to share their knowledge and learning that reflect the diversity, talents and needs of the sector. You will need an excellent knowledge of local government and an understanding what good looks like.

We are particularly looking for people with experience of:

  • finance
  • governance
  • transformation
  • commercialisation and economic growth
  • the green agenda / climate change.

We are also looking for peers with experience of emergency planning and assurance for a planned new peer programme of work.

We are committed to ensuring our peers reflect the diversity and creativity of local government and the communities they serve, and therefore especially encourage interest from underrepresented groups.
