Training offered by Learning and Development

The House of Commons Learning and Development team brochure,  Learning News and Activities (LNA), is now available. Alongside information about our latest work the brochure includes a calendar of all the learning events scheduled for staff of the House of Commons and for Members’ staff. This includes some courses specifically for Members’ staff around various casework issues such as Immigration Law and Welfare Benefits.

If you have access to the Parliamentary Intranet you can view the brochure online (PDF) here. If you would like a hard copy to be sent to your constituency office please contact Genna Mohammed on 0207 219 1422.

Forthcoming Courses for Members’ staff 

Mental Health Awareness

This one day interactive training course which runs from 10am – 4.30pm provides delegates with an awareness of the early signs of distress and a range of mental health conditions. We then look at an array of skills and tools that should manage or diffuse difficult and sensitive situations. The need for the human skills of empathy, compassion and being non-judgemental is balanced with boundaries and sign posting, as well as the importance of managing one’s own stress.
