Training & Assessment

Leo Jensen Consulting provides consulting services associated with the delivery of training & assessment in particular local government and land use planning; councillor training; and one-on-one mentoring.  Leo has worked closely with the Local Government Association of Queensland (and Robin King Cullen from the Planning Academy) and the Planning Institute of Australia.

Leo was instrumental in supporting the initiation of the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) Diploma of Local Government (Planning) in 2004/05 to assist local governments across Queensland in skilling up technical personnel (who were non-planners) to assist with assessing development applications and improving local government response times.

Since that time, over 260 Queensland local government personnel have up-skilled , with a number progressing to higher education qualifications in planning.  Leo has assisted with the delivery of this program since its inception.
