Statutory Training Plans and Self-Evaluation Toolkit
Statutory Training Plans – Kevin Griffiths, Welsh Government & Paul Egan, One Voice Wales (OVW)
The Local Government and Elections (Wales) Act 2021 introduced a duty on community and town councils to publish training plans, taking effect from May 2022. This session will provide an overview of the legislative context and provide practical advice on preparing a training plan. Paul Egan will cover the core competencies of community and town councillors and how One Voice Wales can support councils in ensuring these are met.
Self-Evaluation Toolkit – Mark Galbraith, SLCC Wales Policy Liaison Officer, Kevin Griffiths, Welsh Government, & Paul Egan, One Voice Wales (OVW)
