Module 1: How Local Government Works (26th of October)
This module will give participants an overview of the shape, scale and operational systems in our County and City Councils. It will include the key legislative basis for its work, the role of the Minister and the Department, the role of the Chief Executive, senior staff, Councillors and external representatives such as PPN and LCDC nominees, how Councils are structured, make policies, allocate budgets and resources, implement decisions and account for their work.

Module 2: Influencing the policies and practices of Local Government (16th of November)
From this module participants will develop a clearer understanding of the best approaches for PPN nominees and other community representatives to influence the work of Councils, what approaches tend to work best and how your present the most compelling case for policy, administrative or funding changes.
It will look at the (Urban) Planning processes which has historically been the most open aspect of Council engagement with the community but which is not well understood by communities. Freedom of information and the Lobbying Act will also be examined.

This course is being delivered by Senan Turnbull, former director of community, culture and sports for Fingal County Council.

There will be a follow up session for participants of this course at the start of 2018.
