The Improvement Service offers a series of free workshops to support locally elected members.
Workshops help develop their skills and enhance their knowledge, supporting them to effectively carry out the roles and responsibilities expected of them.
The workshops are held in venues across Scotland on a cross-party basis.
Our 2018/19 workshop programme has finished. Our 20/19 programme will commence from August and details of the workshops will appear here in due course.
