Learning and Development

Every council will run an orientation programme for new members to show you where and who everyone is, followed by an induction programme to help you understand your role, council procedures and the practical skills you need, for example to chair a meeting or take part in a radio interview. Ongoing training will be provided according to what you need.

Details on the induction programme for 2022 are available here. 

Councillors spend at least the equivalent of three days a week on council business, but many describe the job as full time. Many employers recognise the value of the work of councillors and the skills that their employees will gain in the role, so they give time off or allow flexible working for employees who are also councillors.
