The Local Government Training Group (LGTG) is responsible to the Local Government Staff Commission for Northern Ireland and carries out the Commission’s statutory function of
“Promoting or assisting the development of, or providing, facilities for the training of officers.” (Para 40 (4) (e) of Local Government Act (NI) 1972).
Established in 1993 to assist the district councils in Northern Ireland to identify and address training and development needs. While each council is responsible for training and developing its own employees, the LGTG acts on behalf of the local government sector as a whole to add value in the learning process for individuals and organisations.
LGTG is funded by the district councils who make an annual financial contribution in proportion to the net rateable value of their districts. The total contribution for the 2015-16 financial year is £300,000.
