So you think you know what a Councillor does?

  • Do you make decisions on behalf of your Council?
  • Spend Council money as you see fit?
  • Fall asleep in meetings and forget what you offered to do?
  • Exhibit extreme behaviour with officers and fellow members?

Perhaps there are better ways of conducting Council business......

We will explore the do's and don’ts in our full days session, come and find out

The sessions will include

  • A Parish or Town Councillor; Roles and Responsibilities
  • A dysfunctional council. ‘Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail’
  • Conducting our business, checks and balances
  • Communication, communication, communication!!
  • Safeguarding

This session will accrue 3 CPD points

The sessions will be led by Kim Bedford

Kim has over 10 years’ experience in the local council sector, initially as a council clerk, a councillor and County Officer for Gloucestershire, where she developed and instigated advice and training for councillors and clerks. Seeing numerous changes, she has incorporated many new ideas and details into her courses to enable her attendees to ‘hit the ground running’ with enthusiasm and knowledge.
