What our clients say…

Excellent course for prompting you to take stock of things and understand where you are and where you want to be.  It also equips you to take steps to make things happen rather than just hoping that they will


Jason Mumford, Dorset Police

Navigator is a fundamental part of our programme to equip younger or more junior staff with the skills and confidence they will need for more senior jobs with us or elsewhere. It links both to our target of lowering the age distribution across the council and increasing the number of Staff from a BME background in more senior posts.
