The North West Member Development Charter – celebrating all that’s good in councillor development
“ We believe at the heart of any authority dedicated to meeting the needs of its community will be a commitment to the development of its elected members”
This core principle underpins the North West Member Development Charter. Using an established framework, councils have the opportunity to undertake a self-assessment to review their good practice in supporting and developing councillors to continue to fulfil the vital role they play in working with and supporting local communities. There are three levels to the award:
- Level 1 – the starting point to ensure that the building blocks are in place for councillor development ( for councils new to the process)
- Level 1 Review – the next step to ensure continuous improvement and an embedded approach to development that is councillor-led ( renewed every 3 years)
- Level 2 – a more advanced review and in depth evaluation of a particular issue that addresses a need and how the development has impacted on the councillors and the local community
