Robust policy is critical for any government department to reach its desired goals. Strategic planning demands a clear role within the policy process to enable effective policy making and improve relationships with all stakeholders.
The course has been designed for all those working in policy environments, whether at the early stages of evaluating policy proposals and options or at later stages of delivery and evaluation.
Through practical case studies, workshops and discussions with leading practitioners in the field, the programme provides the essential skills for ensuring best practice in strategic thinking, planning and managing the policy process from beginning to end. Participants will improve their understanding of the policy narrative and be fully equipped to develop, deliver and assess a range of policy options concurrent with their organisation's needs. Participants will leave with the ability to communicate and influence the policy process, crucial for those working in governance and key stakeholders.

“ I really enjoyed the Strategic Policy Planning course. The trainers were very knowledgeable and possessed interesting and impressive 'real life' experience. They kept the class engaged with funny anecdotes and engaging questions, and gave breaks in between lessons which helped us learners get through the virtual course smoothly. I would definitely recommend this course and look forward to doing another one in 2024. “
