Now with the flexible option to be delivered in a virtual online classroom and soon to return, face to face training.
For people who regularly need to answer, ask or table Parliamentary Questions, it is crucial to have an overall understanding of how the PQ system operates. It is also important to know the specificities of drafting briefings for, and answers to, the questions themselves.
Part of The Knowledge series, Parliamentary Question: Answering & Tabling is a course that will provide delegates with the knowledge and skills needed to maximise the effectiveness of their input in answering and tabling parliamentary questions.
At Civil Service College, we pride ourselves on our ability to tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
This training course is designed for delegates who need to draft Parliamentary Questions or draft responses and briefings on PQs.
Delegates will gain a thorough understanding of how the system of Parliamentary Questions operates and how the Whitehall machine develops the answers. They will also gain an understanding of how to draft answers to written questions and provide briefings for oral questions.
