Effective Policy Making
“… the conceptual framework very useful...over all a well-designed, well-delivered course”
Now with the flexible option to be delivered in a virtual online classroom and soon to return, face to face training.
Whether it is at an individual or an organisational level, poor understanding, thinking and practice can lead to bad decision making. This in turn can lead to unworkable policies and meagre outcomes.
Our Effective Policy Making training course provides delegates with the tools and techniques needed to help would-be policymakers use evidence more effectively, ultimately leading to better decision-making and improved real world outcomes. A two-day format is also available on request which incorporates the use of case studies and exercises and is ideal for those who need to hit the ground running in policy-making.
Part of our Policy Skills series, Effective Policy Making is a one-day course containing essential insights for anyone working in or with policy.
At Civil Service College, we pride ourselves on our ability to tailor our courses to each delegate, ensuring that courses are applicable to attendee’s role and organisations so that each delegate can get the most from the training. Our courses and trainers are constantly updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
Effective Policy Making course is suitable for delegates who are involved in, or would like to influence, the policy-making process.
Delegates will gain a thorough understanding and experience the reality of policy-making today and what influences it. Using case studies, delegates will be equipped with a “toolkit” of techniques and approaches, and understand how these tools can be deployed for maximum impact.
