Monthly Training Update - October 2023

Virtual meeting

What a busy month August and September have been for training. We've delivered courses to over 130 Clerks, Officers and Councillors in subjects ranging from council social media skills, designing promotional council content, data protection and chairing meetings.

Here is just some of the feedback we have received:

  • "Trainer was clear and confident with the information on the course"

  • "Discussion rather than lecture so engaging"

  • "Many thanks for the time you put into this presentation. Lots to take in but explained really well with the use of examples."

  • "Gosh, lots of useful info that I’m looking forward to putting into practice."

  • "the trainer was clear in what he was saying, he has a warm and welcoming tone"

  • "Appreciate the plain English and simplifications for easy digesting of a complex subject."

  • "Dan made the course interesting and instilled my knowledge deeper and was more councillor related"

Councils also benefit from the networking opportunities that the training enables, with one person commenting they valued "hearing the experiences of colleagues in other councils".
