Highlighting Political Leadership

The LGA's range of political leadership development programmes helps to support and develop councillors ensuring our local politicians are confident and capable.


Inspiring local communities and creating a better future for the people and places we represent takes ambitious leadership – effective political leadership has always been at the heart of healthy democracy.

The LGA's range of political leadership development programmes helps to 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.

Supporting effective political leadership is part of our wider package of Sector-led Improvement; helping councils strengthen local accountability, monitor performance and drive improvement.
