Community Council Training Plan

The council has a statutory duty under section 67 of the Local Government and Elections (Wales) Act 2021 to make a plan setting out what it proposes to do to address the training needs of its councillors and staff.

The purpose of the training plan is designed to ensure that collectively, councillors and staff, possess the knowledge and awareness needed for the council to operate effectively. It is not necessary for all councillors and staff to have received the same training and develop the same expertise.

A new training plan must be put in place after each ordinary election of community councillors to reflect the training needs resulting from changes to the council membership and to provide for the election of new councillors.
Attached below is the council’s first training plan but hereinafter it will review the plan from time to time to keep it up to date and relevant.
