Dates to be confirmed
This course is open to councillors or staff employed by MPs, from any political party, and we anticipate a politically mixed audience. It will cover parliamentary work only. No advice will be given on political campaigning.
The Scheme of MPs's Business Costs and Expenses recognises courses for parliamentary staff that concentrate on parliamentary work as a 'claimable cost' which can be reclaimed from the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA).
To be the first to know when the next course is taking place, or to organise a bespoke version of this for your organisation, email us at email@example.com and we will be in touch.

Need to spend more time learning the ins-and-outs of the arcane world of Westminster? Confused by legislative timetables, or the difference between the Table Office and the Vote Office?
For newly elected MPs, arriving in the Commons is sure to be exhilarating, but may also be daunting. New MPs are often surprised to find no formal training or advice offered, and are left to find their own way around Parliament’s labyrinthine rules and customs.
If you are an aspiring politician who wants to help make a difference and represent people at a local or national level, this course will help you maximise your chances of selection and election.
