Workshop
When:
10:00 AM, Wednesday 24 Aug 2022 (2 hours 30 minutes)

This workshop is designed to look at the approach taken by Parliaments and other entities to provide professional development aimed primarily at elected representatives. Through the lens of both small and large Parliaments, the session asks why is professional development so important to ensure new and experienced Members can fulfil their functions to the highest possible standards? What are the challenges and obstacles in introducing or implementing such programmes? What approach has been taken to date and what lessons can be learnt from current professional development programmes? The session will also examine how professional development training can be retained and embedded for maximum impact and outcomes, as opposed to being forgotten and overlooked.

The Workshop will comprise of a panel discussion followed by breakout discussion, and will conclude with a Q&A session.
