Local Authority training for elected members


I have a contract to train elected members in the scrutiny function of local government - a role recently included in the re-organisation of local democracy (Spring 2000).
I will greatly appreciate any advice / guidance about suitable resources / literature / proven effective training techniques which I may be able to access by early January 2001 for use in this work. Does anyone know of appropriate ways forward in this work?

    Keith, I do not have a specific knowledge of the area you are discussing. However, I do have a wide knowledge of open learning materials design and action learning approaches to training/development. These 2 approaches generally help with any topic. If you have specific content, it can be easily translated into a simple Open Learning ‘Task’ that would enable your participants to look at the issues concerned from their experiences or practice, or by examining their perspective/beliefs. The open learning task could also provide them with some materials on the topic for later reference. This could then be used as the basis for an ‘action learning’ workshop that you could facilitate, where participants discuss the topics and their own answers/thoughts gathered through the task. In this way the real essence of the topic can be covered, individual’s needs can be accounted for and the trainer can start from each person’s starting point. I don’t know if this helps at all – do let me know if I can help further.
