Decision Making at a Governing Board Level (face to face)

Decision Making at a Governing Board Level (face to face)


Decision Making at a Governing Board Level is designed to allow Councillors to look in-depth at the decision-making processes and capabilities required by those who have been elected to serve their communities within Local Government.

The course examines the separate but complementary roles and functions of those involved at the decision making levels of Local Government and why we depend on people to make the system work and not the other way around. Participation in this course provides insights into what it means to operate at the highest levels in Local Government that are not covered in any other units.

Target Audience

  • questioning and listening skills;
