The LGA has produced a series of distance learning materials, covering a number of topics, in the form of workbooks and e-learning modules. Both resources are aimed at all councillors and will be particularly useful to new councillors.

In this section, you will find links to a series of distance learning Councillor workbooks covering a number of topics, as well as a dedicated e-learning platform to assist councillors with their development. Based on our community leadership resources, the modules have been established to help support and develop councillors ensuring our local politicians are confident and capable; well-equipped and well-supported to make a difference, deliver and be trusted.
