Unwavering commitment to government

Sparke Helmore is committed to delivering legal training services that help build and retain skills, expertise and talent within government agencies. Our training service draws upon our decades of experience providing legal services to government and brings together a multi-disciplinary team of legal, education, knowledge management, event management and project management experts who possess significant experience designing, delivering and embedding innovative and comprehensive legal training modules for government agencies.

Modular, tiered training

Our modular approach to training—which has been carefully customised to reflect the needs of our government clients—is made up of three tiers:

  • Programs—bespoke, co-designed, large-scale training that achieves an agency's specific organisational needs, consistent with its underlying capability framework, priorities, operational realities and budgetary constraints.
  • Workshops—tailored, practical and interactive sessions, which meet a short-term need and can be adapted for varying audiences.
  • Seminars—a suite of on-demand, face-to-face/virtual presentations, videos and podcasts that cover a range of essential government legal training topics (see sample seminars below).
