  • What to expect when you attend a Committee meeting as a witness;
  • How to get the most from the opportunity to present to an Assembly Committee. 



The Committee Witness Training will take part in Parliament Buildings.



Sessions will start at 9.30am and finish no later than 12pm. An optional tour of Parliament Buildings will be provided. To find out when the next event or training session will be held, please refer to our calendar.
