Introduction training for Councillors with less than 9 months experience
Date - 17/02/18 - Time: 10am-12noon - Location: Dorset Youth Assocation, Dochester DT1 1QL - Price: £40

Course content: Understanding Local Government (where does the parish council fit in), who’s who in the parish council, how your council works, the public and communications and sources of help. There will be ample opportunities for questions.


Who should attend: New councillors who have been in post for less than nine months. Any councillors with a little more experience who feel this would be of benefit to them are welcome to attend. Please be aware that this is very much about providing sufficient information to allow councillors to appreciate the basics of local government and to understand their new role as a parish councillor.

Attending this training will also enable new councillors to book to attend the more detailed and in-depth Essentials for Councillors course.
