CPA UK is delighted to have been asked by the British Virgin Islands House of Assembly to deliver a series of virtualtraining sessions for parliamentarians.
The training will ensure that elected representatives in BVI are well-equipped to effectively carry out their parliamentary duties, more than two years since they were first elected.
The programme, to be delivered across three sessions, will seek to build on the knowledge and skills gained by House of Assembly Members over the past two years, reflecting upon the challenges and opportunities they have experienced since first being elected.
Sessions will cover a broad range topics relevant to the role of parliamentarians, including fostering cross-party and government relationships, working effectively with clerks, Parliamentary procedure and scrutiny, the role of select committees, and diplomatic and communications skills.
The UK Overseas Territories Project remains committed to strengthening capacity and promoting democracy across the Overseas Territories including BVI, through regular virtual engagement with elected representatives, despite the ongoing constraints of Covid-19. Read more about the project here.
