Who’s who in the government zoo (and what do they do?)
Advocacy is in the community service sector’s DNA, but mystifying government processes can frustrate the best laid plan.
This unique course takes you through the who and what of government decision-making, revealing how you can be a more influential advocate.
Who is this course for?
This eight-hour course would suit those working in the community services sector who have had limited exposure to government and would like to learn more – or who would like to update their knowledge and skills in this area.
What you’ll get out of the course
- A more comprehensive understanding of the people, positions, and processes through which (predominantly) State government decisions are made, including their timeframes
- A sharper understanding of the policy cycle and the opportunities to contribute to public policy
- A keener appreciation of what decision makers are looking for in advice and proposals
- An opportunity to refine your organisation’s story about what it offers, the public benefit and the alignment with governments’ priorities
- A collection of proven methods and resources to take away and use day to day.
