Locale Learning offers online courses, in person and virtual workshops and one to one coaching to supplement local council training programs.
Our approach to training
At Locale Learning we believe investing in the knowledge and skills of local elected representatives is critical to the success of our local communities. It improves the effectiveness of individual councillors and the elected council, builds community trust and confidence in the outcomes.
Ultimately, this means better results for our local communities.
Many ways to learn and grow
New local councillors have described being elected to council as the greatest learning curve of their life. A large part of being a councillor is learning on the job, often very publicly. Locale Learning provides behind the scenes support, helping local councillors to find their feet, hone their skills and reach their full potential. Learn and grow to suit your needs: online or in-person, alone or in groups.
With our online courses you will have a short cut through the steep learning curve to help you be as effective as you can, as early as possible. You can mix and match our modules to meet your training needs or invest in our Ultimate Guide To Being A Councillor course.
One to one
If you are looking for more individualised support in your leadership journey, you can ramp up your leadership by working one to one with a leadership coach or subject matter expert. Our coaches will tailor a support package to meet your needs.
To support the elected body and supplement in-house induction or professional development programs, we offer group workshops across a range of topics. These can be delivered in person or online to suit the needs of council.
