DAPTC Seminar for Clerks and Council Officers - Effective Town and Parish Council Communication and Engagement in a Post-Lockdown World


We are delighted to invite DAPTC-member Clerks and Council Officers to attend an interactive virtual seminar on how parish and town councils can most effectively engage with their local communities in a post-lockdown context, held in partnership with Breakthrough Communications & Strategies.

This practical, virtual session will give Clerks and other officers useful insight into how to strategically improve their council's communications with local residents across both print and digital media, We will look at what is working well for other town and parish councils and consider how build up effective two-way conversations with your community, even if human or financial resources are limited.

Planning Need to Know Trio & Neighbourhood Planning

 

We are pleased to have engaged Dr. Andrea Pellagram to run a series of courses via DAPTC Zoom Online in the Autumn and New Year. We have previously run full days on planning matters covering quite a lot of content and have opted to break this down into bitesize courses for online delivery. Planning Need to Know Trio & Neighbourhood Planning gives an overview of the course content. It's advised members complete all 3 of the modules for planning but have the option of a number of dates in 2020 and early 2021. In addition we will be running in early 2021 two modules to help those members contemplating establishing a Neighbourhood Plan. 

The 'Planning Need to Know' and 'Neighbourhood Planning' modules are £39.00 per delegate per module. Delegates will receive course slides and resources in advance of the dates as well as joining instructions via Zoom. You will require a device that is suitable for online training like a tablet, laptop or desktop.

For background information on the course lead, read about Dr. Andrea Pellagram. 

 

Important! - Please make sure you book training through your Clerks as they will monitor training budgets and ensure council are not overspending the amount set.
