Agents Training Weekend – 26-28 November 2021

About Agents Training Weekend

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. Today, an agent needs to consider data protection (GDPR) and PPERA (the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act) as well as thinking about traditional electoral and other relevant laws, including the seemingly archaic Newspapers, Printers and Reading Rooms Repeal Act (1860).

The legal framework we operate within continues to develop and so up to date training is vital for all agents.

We have developed this course to take election agents through the process in local elections including covering expenditure in the regulated period.

Who is the course for?

The course is suitable for new agents, but will also be a refresher course for existing Agents. This is because expenses rules and election law changes.

The course is being run alongside our November Kickstart weekend.
