Inspire People Professionals
The Inspire Academy is part of a national workforce programme of support to councils across the English regions, working in partnership with the LGA, CIPD and Regional Employers Organisations.
The Academy combines the essentials of Human Resources, Organisational Development and Design and is an evolution of two successful initiatives (Aspire HR Business Partners and Inspire OD).
The LGA are providing grant funding to help subsidise this new programme, to enable council HR and OD professionals to access this opportunity. The aim of this programme is to help people professionals in councils be better prepared, building the skills and mindset required in a changing world, for the COVID recovery and reset work that lies ahead in 2021 and beyond and the need to build more inclusive work cultures.

The Academy Experience
Participants will have access to 8 virtual learning modules (40 hours) and CIPD’s digital learning (15 hours) for self-directed learning around core behaviours.
We will also be encouraging all participants to adopt self reflective practice and apply learning to their own work environments through a sponsorship approach.
