Councillor Workbooks

This page includes the Councillor Workbooks and evaluation form for councillors to download.

The Local Government Association has produced a series of distance learning materials, covering a number of topics, in the form of workbooks. Each workbook has been designed as a learning aid for elected members and makes no judgement about whether you have been a councillor for some time, or whether you have been elected more recently.

You can download and print the workbooks from the box below. You also need to download and print off an evaluation form for each workbook completed. Please send the completed evaluation form to Sharon Finch, People Services.
