Learning and development for councillors
Training and guidance to help you on your leadership journey
Locale Learning offers a range of councillor training options to lift your leadership game and polish your public image.
As a councillor there is a lot to wrap your head around and you are learning in a public way. Even experienced councillors find they have gaps in their expertise. We fast track your knowledge, skills and understanding so you can get on with delivering results for your community.
Learning options for councillors
The ultimate guide to being a councillor
This flagship course is designed so that you can become effective as early as possible in your first term. Our flexible online delivery covers everything you need to know to not only survive but thrive in your first year of office. It is self-paced – delivered monthly for one year.
Skills development modules
Our skills development modules are bite sized learning chunks on topics that matter most to you as a local councillor. These can be completed individually at any time and in any order. Pick and choose content to match your needs.
Building on the basics covered in our skills development modules, the masterclasses are for more experienced councillors who want to sharpen skills or knowledge in a particular area. The masterclasses take a deep dive into a specific topic.
One on one support
If you are looking for more individualised support in your leadership journey, you can level up your leadership by working one to one with a coach. Our coaches will tailor a support package to meet your needs.
Skills audit and personalised learning plan
It is important to identify early your training and professional development needs, and to create a personalised learning plan to support your growth during office. We do a skills audit and work with you to develop a plan just for you.
