Training for local councils

Parish & Town Training, Lancashire

  The aim is to develop a sustainable training programme throughout Lancashire and Merseyside and to ensure that careful budgeting will enable training courses to be sustained in the long term without detriment to either small or large councils.

Ttraining is provided for Clerks and Councillors.  Several courses are held during the year and training can also be brought to individual councils.  Some comments from recent courses;
