Professional Development and Training Opportunities

LGAT offers a range of training and professional development opportunities for Local Government Elected Members and Officers. Our training and professional development program is currently being refreshed - watch this space for upcoming new opportunities! 

Our current program of training and professional development until the end of 2018 can be found below. 

You can also visit our Event Calendar to see all training, events and meetings by calendar year.

LGAT also offers a brokerage service to assist councils in sourcing affordable professional development opportunities.  This service can include liaising with other councils to increase attendance numbers to ensure cost effectiveness whilst also remaining targeted to council needs.  Please contact LGAT on 6233 5962 to discuss your training and professional development requirements.

Presentations from previously held training and professional development can be found on LGAT's Extranet
