Training Information

Assembly Community Connect (ACC) provides training, information and support for the local community and voluntary sector.

We can provide introductory, advanced and tailored training opportunities to meet the specific needs of your group. Please see a list of our training programmes below:

  • How the Assembly Works - This two hour educational programme will give your group a brief overview of the Assembly, how it works and how you can engage more effectively with it.
  • Insight into the Assembly - This programme is for groups which have a general understanding of how the Assembly works but are seeking more in-depth information on specific topics. Each session will concentrate on a particular theme related to the work of the Assembly and its Committees.
  • Get Involved - The Get Involved programme brings the Assembly and its work to your local community. Your group, and other groups in your area, will learn more about how the Assembly works. Your group will be able to question your local MLAs about the issues that matter to you.
  • Tailored Training - We can work with your group to design a training programme that meets your particular needs. We also welcome suggestions for training topics from ACC members. You can forward your ideas to us via the Assembly Community Connect webpage.

We are interested in developing the portfolio of training topics to assist and support your work with the Assembly.
We would like to hear your suggestions for training and we will post your suggestion here for others to view. If there are 20 expressions of interest we will develop the programme, schedule and advertise the session and deliver it. Please complete this form with your suggestions.
