Local training

We provide a range of local training opportunities throughout the year and we aim to cover as much of Great Britain as possible. These range from Motivate (bespoke training days); group away days; technical training events and our delivery of the Be a Councillor programme. For future training dates, see this page’s training calendar.

We run regular webinars – live online training sessions – where we provide timely advice on a different topic each month. To take part, all you need is a computer and an internet connection; and you can ask or send through questions. These sessions are free, last no longer than 45 minutes and are only for ALDC members. View this page’s training calendar for upcoming webinar dates.

We provide training at each of the party’s conferences – Federal, Welsh and Scottish – alongside exhibiting and running fringe events. We always aim to provide a variety of sessions considering the different roles within a campaign and pitched to a range of experience levels.
