How to apply for training

Due to the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 virus we have taken the decision to cancel all face to face training organised by Workforce Development until further notice. We are reviewing this as and when guidance is coming in. If you have any queries please email

Our Learning and Development Self Service facility gives you access to your own account where you will be able to request, view, amend and cancel your learning and development activity.

Gateshead Council employees

You will already be automatically registered. Find the 'My HR and Payroll' icon on your desktop and log on using your account details. To access this system on home pcs, mobile devices or tablets, visit My HR and Payroll.
