- 'Leadership Essentials': a series of events designed as themed learning opportunities for councillors. Each event concentrates on a specific portfolio area, such as Planning or Children's Services, or a specific theme, such as communications or digital leadership.
CTS improvement support during COVID-19
The challenges of COVID-19 created unanticipated challenges for the culture, tourism and sport sectors.
Sport and physical activity 2020-21
In partnership with Sport England, the LGA has provided ongoing support to alumni of the Leadership Essentials programme, to help their leadership development during a crisis, all whilst developing a refreshed programme for a new established cohort of officers.
Arts and culture 2020-21
Cultural services and the wider creative sector have been hard-hit by the pandemic. Our important partnership with ACE enables us to provide critical support to our member councils by developing the knowledge and skills of both councillors and officers to champion cultural activity in their local areas during a period of recovery, where leadership is needed most.
