Design Skills Training 

Integreat Plus has worked throughout Yorkshire and the Humber to support council officers and elected members to deliver high quality place-based ambitions for the region. Through inviting speakers from our panel of experts to deliver each session Integreat Plus can ensure that the information presented is current, relevant and based on best practice.

For each training session Integreat Plus selects members from its expert panel that have the most relevant expertise to suit the needs of the session.

“Working with Integreat Plus was the best thing we ever did, they just knew where we were coming from and made our day really flow. 

Great professionalism bundled up in flexibility and affability really got the best out of our disparate bunch. And we had fun too!”
