Councillor development resources

Learning and development for councillors is vital for councils to deliver what our communities need. At the heart of healthy local democracy is effective political leadership – with councillors who are well-equipped, supported, resilient, and confident to make a difference. We have collated a range of good practice resources relating to councillor development, drawn from councils across England.
