Induction to Local Government

This program provides an overview to Local Government and the important role it plays. It is designed for people who are new to Local Government or for those who want to improve their knowledge of Council governance.

The one-day program is held at different metropolitan and regional Councils throughout the year. Tailored sessions can also be offered to suit individual Councils.

The program is delivered by former Council Chief Executive Officers who understand the sector and the complexities faced by people working in it.
