Background information

The Centre for Quality in Governance (CQG) delivers e-learning and face-to-face bespoke training and development to improve quality in governance across both public and private organisations.


The CQG has an expert faculty, supported by an international advisory group and has developed an expert e-learning programme and maturity matrix app.
