Learning and development activities are being delivered as per the Learning and Development plan. IT training is planned to begin in October along with the Domestic Violence awareness sessions. Three members will be attending the IDeA leadership Academy this year and places will be available for the Btec professional award in local Governance. A number of other individual learning and development needs have also been met.
Evaluation of the activities which have been delivered shows that they are meeting their objectives and improving the way in which we work. To ensure that we continue to meet needs a six month review of learning and development will be carried out at the end of September. In November we are hoping to be assessed against the criteria for the SW Charter for Member Development.
