Hansard launches PA masterclasses

The Hansard Society is to run a series of 'masterclasses' aimed at campaigning groups who want to understand the political process and communicate more effectively with policy makers.

'Politics and Parliament' provides a general overview of the workings of parliament; 'Influencing the Policymaking Process' will tackle how to forge links with politicians at local, national and EU level; and 'EU Policymaking' will assess the impact of EU policies on the UK.

Confirmed speakers for the courses, in October, include former Europe minister Denis McShane and Greg Power, ex-special adviser to two Leaders of the House of Commons, Peter Hain and Robin Cook.

Director of the study programme Dr Philip Parvin said the courses aimed to 'equip new and seasoned communications practitioners with theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary to shape the policy agenda'.
