Pension Fundamentals training course

Pension Fundamentals is our three-day training course aimed at councillors and others who attend pension committees and local pension boards. Past delegates have also included representatives of trade unions and employers, and officers who support committees and boards.

This training course provides an overview of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) and covers current issues relating to the administration, investments and governance of the scheme. All sessions are delivered by experts in their field.

Attending all three days of the training course will support delegates to gain the knowledge and skills either required in statute or encouraged in relevant guidance.

Early booking is recommended as places are limited.
