Undertaking the role of election agent is a challenging and complex task. It carries significant legal responsibility and is increasingly complex. The rules governing elections now have significant variations depending on the type of election and the part of the UK you are in.
The legal framework we operate in continues to develop and so up to date training is vital for all agents.
We have developed a four-part course to take prospective election agents through the process of being an agent, covering local elections and a general election.
The course is suitable for complete beginners, but will also be relevant for those who want to bring their knowledge up to date. Participants will need to attend all four sessions to gain the knowledge required to be an agent.
Part four allows local election agents to convert to being general election agents.

WHERE DOES IT TAKE PLACE:
Yarnfield Park Training and Conference Centre, near Stone, Staffordshire, ST15 0NL (map and directions).
This might be too late for the election but booking in any event...
I see this the same weekend of Kickstart. Do we have to stay at the venue or can we find other accomindation?
The fourth part - the "conversion" session - is that going to be available on other dates and places? A full weekend in Staffordshire is not an option for me
At this short notice I can do All day Friday and Saturday but need to leave by 11.00am Sunday I think its worth a try?
Does this really require two whole days and residential stay? We are in campaign mode and really could do with a one-day non-residential option.
Are there any plans for a session further south?
There was talk of webinar-based training. Is this going to happen?
