Do you want to have a say in and give back to your local community?
The FUTURECLLR programme seeks to give individuals interested in pursuing a career in politics the chance to engage as a Councillor in a structured training programme, express their local area's best interests and address under-representation challenges. Our programme assumes no prior knowledge of politics.
The programme structure involves three parts:
Masterclasses – Delivered over three months by experts on topics relevant to understanding the role of councils and councillors
Events – Meet with senior campaigners and councillors, helping bring knowledge to life through practical experience
Coaching – Provided to participants on a one-to-one basis during and after the programme
The programme will also allow you to benefit from our MasterClasses, which involves a 2-hour session every week over a 4 week period. Weekly sessions include:
The role of a Councillor
What is Local Government
Participants will also benefit from 3 mentoring sessions during the beginning, middle and end of the programme.
For 2020 and early 2021, we will be running an accelerated programme, focusing on the MasterClass elements, and delivered in a one day workshop.
