Effective Minutes Taking Training

Accurate minute taking is needed for the function of meetings. Without an accurate account of what was discussed, the direction can be lost and mistakes made. The importance of minute taking in the daily operations of organisations is essential for safeguarding and other matters. A concise presentation of information that is available to all who are involved is paramount.

This course aims to enhance the ability of those responsible for documenting meetings through minute and note-taking by covering the relevant scenarios related to the participant’s organisation.

Effective Minutes Taking Training is an expert online course within our Professional Development Skills series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each participant’s role and organisation, ensuring that each participant gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
