Commissioner Stories


Member/Commissioner Case Studies

At Staff College, we often get asked by our Members to develop a bespoke programme for their organisation following their experiences of attending programmes with us.

Hear what our commissioners think of working with us

Not only are we interested in understanding the impact that our programmes have for our Members, we’re also keen to know what it’s like for our commissioners to work with us.

Dr Anwar Khan attended a bespoke Staff College programme for London Cancer in 2011-12.
