Parish & town councils actively committed to councillor training will receive public recognition in an awards scheme run by DAPTC, which started on 1st April 2016. The awards for the training year 2016/2017 were given out in March 2017.

The Star Award certificates are presented to councils meeting the qualifying criteria. These certificated can be displayed in the council’s meeting place, to publicise the council’s percentage of councillors participating in courses, conferences and update events to widen and update their knowledge of the many factors that can help them serve their communities.

Attendance certificates will continue to be given to councillors at the end each course, conference or update event during the training year 2017/18, to contribute towards the awards to be given out in May 2018.
