This course is suited to all staff who take minutes at informal meetings within council. By attending this course, participants will gain improved skills in preparing for and taking minutes accurately.

Learning Outcomes

This training course is designed to give you the basic tools you need to take minutes during a meeting, prepare accurate minutes and make them available to attendees, ensure they are adopted and kept in accordance with the appropriate legislation and policies.

A Minutes’ template will be provided for publicly schedule courses. For in-house training, councils may provide council’s Minutes’ template.
