Councillor Training

Councillors are involved in decision making across a number of complex areas. In recognition of this, Councillors are allocated an annual training & education budget which supports them for decision making and in their roles as leaders. Training expenditure is reported annually in the City of Casey’s Annual report however a list of all completed training is provided here for transparency.
