The Legislation Process: From policy development to an act

“Excellent course, very informative about the bill process, the importance of committees and the extra elements of parliament.”

Intergovernmental Relations Advisor, Scottish Parliament

Turning a policy into legislation takes many stakeholders to work effectively together.  Getting an agreement for policies in Whitehall can be difficult, but getting an agreement in the Commons and Lords can be even harder. 

This training course will illustrate, through case studies and examples, how policy is worked through into draft legislation and the key stages that take place both in Whitehall and Parliament.   

'The Legislation Process: From policy development to an act' is from our Policy Skills series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each participant’s role and organisations, ensuring that each participant 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.
