Leadership Programme for Councillors

The Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) is working in partnership with Academi Wales and the Welsh Government to deliver the Leadership Programme for Councillors in Wales.


The Leadership Programme is a place where leaders, and those in leadership positions, can explore the latest thinking in political leadership, and equip themselves with the knowledge and skills they need to rise to these challenges.


Part of the strength of the Leadership Programme is that it provides an environment where elected members from across the political spectrum can meet leading members from other councils and parties and talk about issues that are common to them.


This combination of learning from experts in the field of leadership and from the experience of their peers gives graduates confidence in their abilities and a new network of trusted colleagues.


Programmes are cross-party and restricted to 25 councillors at any one session to ensure maximum participation.
