Governing Councils

We provide a range of nationally recognised qualifications (local government specific) and council-specific non-accredited short courses as well as other professional development training options.

The fundamental role of councillors is to serve and represent the interests of their community (the local government area) as a whole, rather than those of any section or interest group. 

This workshop looks at the responsibilities of councillors in representing the overall public interest when making decisions to benefit their communities. Topics include:
