CFOC TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME; for your political, community and/or working life journey.
CFOC are launching a new development and training program on Monday 17 May 2021, aimed at helping you in your political, community and/or career journeys.
We are very delighted to welcome Merrill Powell, our Head of Training and Development. Merrill is a former television presenter, W2W coach and training, and has helped many to become Members of Parliament.
In preparing to stand for a position in any area of public life, you will acquire a range of extremely valuable skills and abilities, which are also transferable to your business or working lives too.
Currently, half a million British Chinese are significantly underrepresented in Parliament and in local politics. Lord Wei and Alan Mak MP are the only Parliamentarians.
There are compelling reasons to increase representation. The British Chinese community should be more visible and have its voice heard with many more role models, the community is an asset for Global Britain in trade and cultural understanding and UK values its cultural diversity and identity as a land where its people can develop their potential.
Many talented individuals in the British Chinese community want to contribute to UK public life. Through this programme we want to encourage them to come forward and support them to be successful.
We are working hard to address this shortage of local and national political representation by our active outreach programme of identifying, encouraging, nurturing, developing and training potential talent from the British Chinese Communities and increasing the political diversity pipeline.
We will be delighted to welcome anyone who will benefit from the development and training on offer. Everyone is welcome.
So, regardless of where you are in the spectrum of your political or community development journey, do join us as there is something for everyone on this programme. The programme will include developing transferrable life skills, useful in all areas of your life and career advancement. You will also meet other like-minded people.
So if you are:
- a beginner starting out and would like to know more about local and national political and community involvement and how to get involved and develop the necessary skills required.
- in the intermediate stage of your political journey, eg. if you are a Local Councillor or a Conservative Association Officer and want to progress further but need guidance and help with developing other core skills.
- in the advanced stage of having been a Parliamentary candidate who who intends to stand again.
- community champion with ambition to achieve more.
Then you have come to the right place. CFOC Development and training courses will help you to ‘move your dial’ in the development and improvement of the skills needed for a public role and useful in all areas of life too to reach your full potential.
