COK – in English

COK stands for Center for Offentlig Kompetenceudvikling, which roughly translates to The National Academy for Government Management and Training. 

COK sets people and processes in motion to provide the opportunity for new value and welfare to arise. We do this as consultants, advisers and educators – and through integrating theoretical and practical knowledge of co-creation in to the services of COK.

From learning needs to practice-oriented training

As the municipalities own company, COK supports the current welfare-reforms in e.g. the social-, school- and employment sector by translating new needs for learning to practice-oriented training for all groups of employees within the public sector.   This is achieved through courses, educations, conferences, seminars and workshops – and through the development and implementation of local training offers, developed in close collaboration with the municipality and in extension of the municipality's particular strategies and needs for development.

Purpose

As a company owned by KL (Local Government Denmark), COK is an active part of the municipal development of welfare and our task is clear:
