Managing council employees: How to address capability

Tue, 07 Sep 2021 13:30

Managing council employees: How to address capability

1.30pm - 3.00pm £22.50 or £16.88 with small council bursary

Capability refers to an employee's ability to perform the work expected of them to the required standards. A council's employees are generally its most valuable (and most expensive) asset, and it is important that the council ensures that work is being performed as it should be and has procedures in place to take action should it find that expected standards are not being met.

This short, interactive session provides guidance and the basic tools for councils to ensure compliance with the law and best practice in addressing matters related to capability (i.e. an employee's skill, aptitude, health or any other physical or mental quality in relation to the job that they are employed to do).

Chairmanship Skills Pt 1

Tue, 28 Sep 2021 18:30

Chairmanship Skills Pt 1

6.30pm - 8.30pm £30.00 or £22.50 with small council bursary.

YLCA have decided to present this course slightly differently by dividing it into two sessions to allow sufficient time to examine the varying aspect of chairmanship in detail and allow time for questions. Over the two sessions we will examine the general principles of chairmanship, the importance of a good agenda, management of meetings, stimulating debate, managing councillors and the public and effective working with the clerk.

Only book onto this session if you are also booking Part 2.
