This course is designed to help you understand how to develop policies that provide an effective response to public policy challenges and achieve the intended outcomes. It will enable participant's new to the policy environment to understand the key stages in policy making and will also help those with experience deepen their understanding of how to develop and implement effective policy.
As well as being designed for civil servants, this course is also useful for others working in roles that require an understanding of policy in the wider public sector (e.g. local government, health and education). People from the private and voluntary sectors who need to understand how to influence government departments in their development and implementation of policy will also find it useful and interesting.
