We are a team of experienced tutors who are also practising clerks.  One of our tutors can deliver a tailored course at a venue local to you or online. Sessions are usually 2-2.5 hours starting at a time to suit your attendees.

WHOLE COUNCIL TRAINING

We ask that you select a maximum of six out of the ten topics listed or let us know if there's something else you'd like us to cover:

  • Background to Local Councils (including all tiers of local government) 

  • Roles and responsibilities – Clerk/RFO, Councillors, The Corporate Body, Chairperson, the Council as an employer 

  • Powers and duties 

  • Meetings (including voting and public participation), minutes and agendas 

  • The two annual meetings, elections and co-option 

  • Financial management (including transparency rules if relevant) 

  • Risk management and insurance 

  • Planning overview

  • Data Protection 

  • The Code of Conduct 

 

We find that these sessions can be hugely beneficial in giving councillors and staff the opportunity to receive training together, tailored to your council’s needs, and allows the time to discuss topics in a relaxed environment.

Contact us for further information and we'll send you a formal quotation.
