Training encourages healthy partnerships
Saldanha Bay Municipality recently participated in a three-day training session for Ward Councillors. The training, Partners in Transformation, is a practical guide to local government and its transformation, facilitated by the Democracy Development Programme (DDP).
The workshop helps to ensure that communities make the shift in recognising that the delivery of services is not an exclusive role of municipalities, but that communities also have a responsibility in ensuring that services are maintained and that communication around dissatisfaction is appropriate.
The DDP previously conducted this training in Witzenberg and Khayelitsha in the Western Cape. Based on comments received from participants, it was very well received.
Modules covered in the training includes how the municipality works, change management, community participation, Integrated Development Plan (IDP), budgeting, project management and partnership in practice. All participants were issued with a certificate of attendance upon completion of the training.
