What Do We Offer?

Municipal Management Modules

AMANS recognizes the value of education, training and development and the importance of having municipal government staff and elected officials who have the capacity to meet today's challenges.

To ensure that critical knowledge and skills required for municipal governance and administration are in place, AMANS assessed the current and future education, training and development needs of key positions within the municipalities across Nova Scotia.

Working in collaboration with municipal subject matter experts and professional curriculum developers, we designed the Municipal Management Modules to build capacity of established and aspiring municipal leaders in core areas such as:

  • Leadership
  • Strategic Planning
  • Legislation and Policy
  • Financial Management
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Human Resource Management

Session Layout

The AMANS Municipal Management Modules are designed for Chief Administrative Officers (CAOs), Managers and Directors, Mayors, Wardens, Deputies, Councillors and individuals aspiring to those positions. AMANS provides participants with workbooks that outline all the content covered during the workshop and provide resources for on-going learning for after the module. Each workshop is limited to 30 participants and will be an immersive classroom environment. AMANS believes that participants learn from each other so these workshops have been developed to be interactive using real life case studies and engaging group discussions.
