Local Government, Toolbox of the month

Local Government Toolbox homepage

Haven’t had enough of politics lately? Take a look at the Local Government Flexible Learning Toolbox.

The Local Government Industry Training Package Toolbox offers learning opportunities to a range of Local Government employees and elected members.

Seventeen units of competency are addressed through three streams:

  • Community stream – containing scenarios which are primarily related to issues affecting the general public.
  • Administration stream – containing scenarios which are mainly to do with the administration of the Council.
  • Governance stream – containing scenarios which are related to issues affecting the elected members of the Council.

Learners select a scenario within the Toolbox then complete activities within that scenario by exploring resources, using the guide, and referring to readings and websites in the library.

The teacher’s guide (Word, 486 kB) describes the Toolbox and how it can be used to support the Local Government Industry Training Package in an online environment. The guide relates the Toolbox to the Local Government Competency Standards, describes the elements of the Toolbox and how it is structured, and suggests ways of using the Toolbox as part of a training program.
