Programme officer – Mayors office for policing and crime
As someone with no experience of policy this was a good explanation of steps to consider in policy development.
Policy Advisor – Electoral commission
Getting an opportunity to test out some of the different skills talked about through the use of case studies; getting a greater understanding of the whole policy process so that I can understand how the government departments that we, as an organisation, work with approach policy making and where we fit into that or can add value.
Senior Administrator, Gilead Sciences
The trainer was excellent, insightful and experienced
Senior External Affairs Manager, The Health Foundation
Really good balance of knowledge building about how things work alongside practical skills and tactics.

The trainer did well to take into account our roles, organisations and specific questions, and ensured he answered these before the end of the session.
Knowledge Officer, Alzheimer’s Society
All of it . I learned things I didn't know I needed to know! It sets a firmer foundation for my research when looking at legislation and I have a better understanding of how it is developed and produced. I also know now where to look for important information.
Policy Officer, Wellcome
Learning how to influence legislation and when to influence. Very useful because trainer used examples which directly applied to my work on immigration policy.

The trainer was excellent. The stakeholder mapping was probably the most beneficial, but the overview of stakeholder engagement generally was particularly useful.
