What is Civil Service Learning?

Civil Service Learning (CSL) provides all civil servants with high-quality, flexible and approved training through a common curriculum. It offers generic learning and development to the civil service through a combination of e-learning and face-to-face instructor-led training. CSL also provides access to over 6,000 online learning resources.

The purpose of CSL is to:

  • develop the capability of the civil service by improving knowledge, skills and confidence
  • provide quality learning that offers value for money and supports the delivery of services for the public

CSL also arranges the procurement of additional business-specific and technical learning. It ensures an approved route for developing learning is followed and that value for money is achieved for departments.
