Wiltshire Training is the trading arm of the Organisational Development delivery team at the council. We are committed to supporting our communities, protecting our most vulnerable residents and enabling economic growth by offering quality and engaging training at excellent value for money.
We offer a wide range of training courses for individuals and organisations, including:
- Training sessions available for individuals to book onto
- Bespoke training programmes available on request for group bookings
- First aid trainers approved and certified by Qualifications Network, a leading First Aid national awarding body, and we are audited regularly by Internal and External Qualified Assessors
- The same quality training that is also delivered internally to the Wiltshire Council workforce.
Our most popular courses are open to everyone, and scheduled to run at sites across Wiltshire throughout the year. Scheduled courses are the best option if only one person, or a couple of people, need training.
You can also book group training for your team. This is more cost-effective for larger groups and gives you more flexibility on time and location.
If you need specific or bespoke training for your team, please get in touch.

We can meet your training needs with a blended learning approach which includes face-to-face workshops and e-learning.
Some of our courses are accredited, this means they can lead to a qualification. Depending on the units of study, this may be an Award/Certificate/Diploma or single certificated units. Accredited courses are certified by relevant industry-leading professional institutions.
