Our policy-making and legislative training courses are ideal for all those responsible for the design, planning, communication, implementation or evaluation of policies, and for the legislative drafters and legal counsel who are tasked with turning these policies into good quality legislation.
Delegates learn how to develop effective, evidence-based policies and then translate that policy into legislation. They learn the essential skills of legislative drafting to achieve this, including the use of clear communication and legislative language.
