NewMacroeconomic Forecasting for the Public Sector and Civil Service
This five-day programme developed by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) aims to equip participants with a skill set and tools in macroeconomic forecasting and modelling and is targeted at those who already have a background in statistics and econometrics at undergraduate level.
NIESR and Civil Service College have collaborated to offer this comprehensive course which will examine the possible economic landscape post-Covid and the forecasting and evaluation tools which can help steer public bodies and sector organisations through this period. Positioning will be broad-ranging and explore the economic implications and challenges from a wide range of different perspectives and include visits to either the Bank of England or the London Stock Exchange. Provide some certainty in a changing world where every economist will say something different, with access to valuable resources which will create a solid framework to navigate the post-Covid age.
The course will be delivered by an international team, comprising economists from the UK, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean.
Programme Director: Dr Corrado Macchiarelli, Principal Economist, NIESR
