Public Engagement - training
Are you working to foster a culture of engagement in your organisation? The Engage Academy is for you if your role primarily involves supporting others to engage.
Engage Academy is NCCPE's year-long professional development programme for the public engagement sector. It enables you to become more confident in your role, develop a strong and supportive network, and embed high quality engagement in your organisation.
Over the course of a year you will look at high-quality practice for enabling engagement, embedding it, rewarding it, and evaluating it. Curated by NCCPE, with innovative and inspiring examples from sector leaders, the Engage Academy includes expert-led workshops, peer support, mentorship, as well as an online space to connect with peers throughout the year.
The academy takes place over three 2-day sessions in Bristol, and costs £990 (bursaries are available).
Deadline for bookings is 9 April. You will be notified if your application has been successful by the end of April.
