How do I become a LGPS Champion?

We don’t expect you to be an expert from day one, we’ll train you to have a good understanding of the LGPS, however you’ll be supported all the way by one of our organisers from your Regional Office.

To learn more about becoming a rep, you can take part in some of our taster webinars.

Although there is legally no training required your branch may ask you to undertake some training. Pension Champions are entitled to time off for training. Your branch will help in agreeing the time off from your employer.
