Since the Institute for Government was founded we have provided opportunities for professional development to more than 100 ministers, MPs and peers from across the political spectrum.

We provide advice about preparing for the roles and fulfilling their wide-ranging responsibilities, and a private space for challenge and reflection, away from the constraints of department and party.
