Transformation masterclasses

Our virtual Transformation masterclasses will bring together council officers from across England to share ideas and solutions on the transformation of local government service delivery.


Are you a council officer who has responsibility for delivering your council's ambitions for transformation? Sign up for one of our Transformation masterclasses to hear from councils delivering innovative change and transformation programmes with plenty of opportunities for collaboration, discussion, and support. Each masterclass will:

  • highlight an example of notable practice to guide participants through the process of how councils deliver widespread transformation and change programmes
  • offer a different perspective on transformation to provide understanding into various methodologies and practical guidance to support replication and scaling of notable transformation practices.

Masterclasses are open to English council officers, free of charge. Masterclasses will last a maximum of two hours and be hosted on Microsoft Teams.

Bookings are now open for the following masterclasses, with more to follow as they are confirmed:
