Barnet Borough Council will host the event for residents who are considering standing for election on May 22 at Hendon Town Hall on Wednesday March 5.

From 7pm to 8.30pm, prospective candidates will hear about the nomination process, how the council makes decisions and the workload and responsibilities involved in being a councillor.

A current elected member from another local authority will also talk about what it is like to be a councillor and answer questions.

Lessons include 'how to fill in an expenses claim form' and 'how to get paid £10,000 a year whilst getting officers to do all the work'. The class 'taking responsibility for your own actions' was cancelled due to a lack of interest.
