Our number one priority is the health and well-being of our staff and members and staff from all our member councils.

Following the Government announcement yesterday that people should avoid public gatherings, we have decided to suspend the KALC Learning & Development Programme with immediate effect. This means that the upcoming CiLCA workshops, Dynamic Councillor workshops, Audit workshop, and the Suicide Awareness workshops have been postponed and we will look to re-arrange these workshops for later in the year.

For those councils that have already paid for one of these events by cheque or by direct credit into our bank, please let Laura know ( ) if you wish us to provide the council with a credit for a future KALC event or whether the council would prefer a refund. If you have paid by debit or credit card, this will be refunded to your card.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

The KALC Executive Committee strongly encourages all Councillors and Clerks to undertake training and for the Council to ensure that it has a training budget and training policy and plan in place.

The Association has a long history of providing a comprehensive range of quality training to member Councils for new and experienced Officers and Members. The full-day Conferences consist of both formal papers and modular training with a maximum of 100 delegates in attendance, which provide excellent networking opportunities and learning about new initiatives and projects and updates on legislation. The half-day modular training for up to 30 delegates is also available on demand by area at flexible times.

With the constantly changing nature of the sector, new courses are frequently added and suggestions for future events are always welcome.

Please use the information above to plan your own Local Councils training programme for officers and members.

Please note that all of our training carries Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
