The Institute of Regulation can provide training and development in the theory and practice of regulation.

We are working with our partners – The Open University, The Institute of Leadership and Management, and The Civil Service College – to develop accredited training, from half-day courses up to post-graduate degrees in regulation. We can also connect Institute members to learn from each other on specific topics.

Here is more information on our upcoming training events.

The training is designed as an introductory course to regulation, tailored for individuals who are relatively new to the regulation sector - though ‘seasoned’ regulatory experts have also appreciated attending. 

By the end of this session, participants can expect to gain a comprehensive understanding of the following key areas:

      • Purpose of Regulation: In this segment, we delve into the purpose of regulation. This will include an exploration of the objectives that regulation aims to achieve and the role of a regulator in maintaining order and ensuring compliance.
      • The Regulatory System and How Regulators Work: Our training also covers the intricacies of the regulatory system in the UK. We will examine the various approaches to regulation that exist, and participants will gain insights into how regulators are set up to deliver their objectives.
      • How Regulatory Practice is Changing: This part of the session is interactive. We will explore trends in regulation and engage in discussions about the evolving landscape of regulatory practices. We encourage participants to share their viewpoints on how regulators can adapt and respond to these changes effectively.

The session is structured to equip individuals with a solid foundation in the field of regulation, ensuring participants are well-prepared to navigate the complexities of this sector.
