Fellows are encouraged to network with their fellow Fellows! A closed group for Fellows already exists on Face Book and we have now just set up a new closed group on Linked In - a professional networking site. We have done this as Terry Rich who led the Fellows training session on 'Understanding Local Government' during our development days is hosting Q+A sessions to help us connect in the best way with our local authority colleagues.
Fellows should already have received an invite to join our Linked In Fellows closed group. You will need a Linked In Profile to join the group - it is a simple process to set up a LinkedIn account. If you have not received an invitation, please request to join the group
We are currently closed for applications.
Please keep your eye on the website for details of your next opportunity to apply.
