One of the key aims of the civility and respect project has been to deliver training support for councillors, clerks, and employees who experience difficulties with bullying and harassment, and to start to address some of the causes of poor behaviour. We recognise that times and dates for webinars and training courses do not always suit the busy schedules of local council members and employees, and that a blended approach is often needed to share vital information.
E-learning enables councils to respond quickly to learners’ needs, with flexibility and without having to organise physical training with fixed times and dates. SLCC and several county associations already offer a comprehensive range of e-learning options for clerks and councillors, and we are now pleased to be able to extend this further.
We are working with Nimble, online learning specialists, to enable councils access to a suite of engaging online learning at affordable prices which will be available to everyone across our sector. Clerks and councillors in most areas can enrol and pay for courses online.
If you are in South West, East of England, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Staffordshire, and Warwickshire, you should enrol via your county association.
If you are a clerk, please select the SLCC option when you enrol.
The sign up process is simple and will give you access to a bespoke range of e-learning designed specifically for the civility and respect project, but also to some extremely useful additional training modules covering subjects such as mental health awareness, personal safety and diversity & inclusivity.
The first 4 bespoke e-learning modules, created specifically as part of the civility and respect project, are:
- Standards in public life e-learning (Author: South West County Association)
- Respectful and Positive Social Media for Councils and Councillors (Author: Breakthrough Communications)
- Leadership in Challenging Situations for Councils and Councillors (Author: Breakthrough Communications)
- Personal Resilience for Councils and Councillors (Author: Breakthrough Communications)
**If your council is paying for the training, please ensure you have their permission to pay for the training prior to registering **
