This is designed as a refresher course for councillors who have attended a core Councillor training session and ideally spent some time gaining hands-on experience as a local councillor.
Councillors, as elected representatives, are often thrown in at the deep end with very little training and support. Whilst core councillor training sessions provide a much-needed introduction to the world of local councils, there is very little opportunity for more experienced councillors to pause and reflect on what is still to be achieved in terms of professional development and learning. The session is focussed around a series of case studies, providing an important opportunity for councillors to explore and discuss commonly arising issues and typical scenarios in greater depth.
The purpose of the session is to refresh knowledge of procedure and practice and to further empower councillors to handle council business effectively and confidently. A range of topics will be covered including local council spending powers, councillor conduct and planning ahead for the medium term. Councillors will receive key sector updates.
Presented by Frances Webster, solicitor, Wellers Law Group
