Session 2 (90 minutes)  is where we will examine and understand the Key Roles and Responsibilities within a council, the role of the Code of Conduct and our relationship with the Principal Authority Monitoring Officers, how we use delegated authorities and our responsibilities as Councillors under the Employment Act.

Session 3 (90 minutes) will examine Council’s statutory duties under the General Data Protection Act and adhering to the law when managing data, the actions to take when faced with Freedom of Information Requests or Subject Access Requests and the role of the Information Commissioners Office.
