Alert:

This course has been cancelled. Please register your interest and we will notify you of future courses of the same type.

This one-day programme is designed to help busy public sector professionals and managers understand how British government works – both the big picture and the nuts and bolts of policy and policy-making. In a very interactive, responsive and hands-on way, we’ll explore the ‘tools of government’ and how they can be deployed in making policy – as well as the various institutions and actors involved. Even if you are not directly involved in policy (making, implementing or evaluating) this event should help you understand better the context of your professional or managerial work.
