Who we are
What we do

Previous seminars

APSE seminars aim to provide delegates with an individual insight into both issues of policy and practice within local government. Through high profile plenary speakers, specialist workshops and break-out sessions run by expert speakers and fellow local government practitioners, our events offer ample opportunity to meet with representatives from other local authorities; helping to develop best practice and discuss the latest issues and problems and how they might be solved.

APSE holds a selection of service area and issue based seminars throughout the year and also a range of seminars for our members in front line services such as catering, cleaning, leisure, highways and parks which take place across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
