About the Event

Politics Plus are delighted to welcome the new and returning MLAs to the Northern Ireland Assembly. During the Member’s Reception on the 9th and 10th May, the Politics Plus team were busy meeting with the Members to find out their needs for continuing professional development. The team were pleased to see a great deal of interest from MLAs in the Member Induction programme.

Politics Plus have worked to develop a robust Induction programme to support Member’s within their role. Members can avail of development initiatives in a wide range of areas; from speech-writing and speech-delivery to effective scrutiny of legislation and the Leadership Programmes. Politics Plus also run the Experts in Residence Programme which provides access to experts across a wide range of professional development areas.

Politics Plus is providing its first Induction programme on the 6th July and 7th July. Experts, such as Eileen Mullan from Strictly Boardroom, will hold sessions on Strategic Planning and host a ‘Committee Plus’ workshop. Members will have the opportunity to engage with officials from the Northern Ireland Assembly, Northern Ireland Audit Office and the Office of the Legislative Counsel.

Politics Plus have developed these programmes to provide new Members with the best possible foundation to commence the new mandate. Returning Members can also benefit from the Member Induction Programme; as a way of refreshing and enhancing their skills.

We look forward to working with the Members.

Please contact our office if you are interested in getting involved in some of our programmes.
