This article relates the creation of a training consortium by England's Sussex District Council. The Sussex Training Consortium (STC), formed in 2004, became a successful way of reducing training costs while still providing effective learning. It aims to enhance the quality of learning and development for all staff working in district and borough councils in the area. A training programme is created every year that reflects the training needs of each member authority. Particular focus is given to the benefits of the consortium.
