Councillor Professional Development

The purpose of this policy is to demonstrate our commitment to ensuring that Councillors have access to training and educational opportunities which will assist them to develop and maintain the skills and knowledge required to perform their civic duties.

Councillor professional development is necessary to develop and maintain Councillor competence and is consistent with the achievements of Council’s goals. Councillor professional development will be based around relevance to the individual Councillor and be of benefit to the enhancement and development of the Councillor’s skills and abilities with regard to effective community representation.
