EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

DEMOCRATIC SERVICES COMMITTEE

11TH JUNE 2018

 

 

Member Development – Personal Development Reviews [PDR]

 

 

 

The Local Government (Wales) Measure 2011 (Chapter 1 – Part 7) makes specific provision for the training and development of members of a local authority and states that

 

·                    “A local authority must make available to each member of the authority an annual review of the member's training and development needs.

 

·                    The review must include an opportunity for an interview with a person who is, in the opinion of the authority, suitably qualified to provide advice about the training and development needs of a member of a local authority.”

------------

Elected Members have a wide range of roles and responsibilities which they are expected to undertake. The PDR process will assist Elected Members to identify any support that may be required to fulfil these roles effectively. Attaining the appropriate level of knowledge, skills and experience identified during the PDR process will enable them to fulfil their roles

 

The Authority has previously taken the approach that Personal Development Reviews should be undertaken by the leaders of the political groups, this will allow groups to identify those areas where there is a  demand for training so that it is member-led. This will enable training to be undertaken in non-political, possibly informal groups where appropriate, bearing in mind the limited resources, and the preparation of a planned training programme. The Corporate Development Advisor will be on hand to assist in any member-led assessment of training needs and to enable the Member Development Programme to be tailored in accordance with training needs.

 

Attached for the Committees attention are the existing templates which are made available to Group Leaders to assist in the reviews.

 

It is suggested that the training needs of any unaffiliated members should be ascertained by the Chair of the Democratic Services Committee.
