Councillors Training

As detailed in the Guide to the Role and Duties of an Aberdeenshire Councillor (pdf 737KB) in order for a councillor to fully play his or her part requires them to be diligent in accepting the opportunities for training when provided.

It was agreed that Aberdeenshire Council councillors will undertake at least five days Continuous Professional Development (CPD) per annum.

A range of opportunities are made available including: induction for newly elected councillors, sessions on local government finance and the recruitment of head teachers, as well as customised training for those sitting on licensing boards.
