Political Leadership for 2021 (PL2021) is an online professional development course for MPs. It gives MPs the tools and insights based on experience from those who have led before. Content is based on real life examples and practical case studies.
As well as hearing from expert speakers there will be ample opportunity for interaction and discussion, MPs will also receive supporting references, case studies and short videos.
PL2021 is open to all NSW state MPs, after more than 60 NSW and Victorian MPs participated in 2020.
This year, the course is focused on being an effective MP in a post-COVID world. It will include sessions on leadership; the COVID era and your role as an MP; MPs mental health and wellbeing; delivering policy reform; and how MPs can influence reform. The course is designed to be flexible, so MPs can choose sessions to fit their interests and availability.
