Training Courses

Welcome to the w4mp training section. Here you will find details of training for the staff of MPs provided by the House of Commons.  Please note that these courses are not open to the general public.

Training offered by Learning and Development

The training is free for Members’ staff to attend, the only cost from your end would be travel and accommodation. However these costs can be claimed back through IPSA. Courses offered have been designed to develop and build skills in a range of core areas for Members’ staff.
