Training for parish councillors

0 votes
I am a new parish councillor and have written to the chair and clerk of my pc requesting local NALC training (we are members )  but neither has responded. What next steps can you suggest please?

Firstly I would approach the matter from a different angle. Check with the clerk or the budget what amount (if any) is allocated for training. Check with budget tracking how much has been spent or remains. Then get the pass codes for your local NALC office ( from the clerk)so that you can get a list of the training courses (and dates) they are offering and if the finance is available put in an official request to the clerk for inclusion on any courses you feel would benefit you. If your PC does not have a training budget then table a motion to have it included in the next budget proposals for the next year.( happening at the moment or for discussion in January for passing to LA)
