This training is designed for any woman who is interested in getting involved with politics or has already started her political career. Among the barriers that stand in the way of women from entering politics are the 5 C’s (Cash, Childcare, Confidence, Culture & Candidate selection process). Delivered through three online training sessions over three weeks, INSPIRE will focus on the 3 C’s- Confidence, Communication and Campaigns.

Many local councillors, senators, MEPs and TD’s have taken part in our training during recent years. Click here to hear what Maria Walsh, MEP, has to say about her experience of training with Women for Election.

As a participant, you will work with experts who will demystify politics and show you the nuts and bolts of ‘getting in’. You will work to develop your skills in campaigns, communication and confidence.

Each participant will receive an INSPIRE pack, which covers all course work, as well as a Women for Election tote bag. You will complete the training with the tools and direction to take your next step on your political journey, as well as the support of the Women for Election network.

*We never want cost to be a barrier to people joining our training- concessionary prices are available as well as scholarship places. Get in touch at to find out more.
