Course Overview


This course is a comprehensive two-day interactive course covering all the skills needed to formulate, advise and implement strategy policy outcomes. The course gives learners a better understanding of all aspects of the policy process, including the processes by which policies are defined, developed, implemented and evaluated, the impact of the political system on policy making, and the importance of internal and external consultation in achieving policy objectives.

"I highly recommend the Advanced Policy course run by Dr Randal Stewart. The content is both challenging and enriching and is perfectly calibrated with the requirements of the NSW Public Sector."

ZOOM Virtual Classroom

Our virtual classroom consists of a facilitator teaching the class to students who are dialled in remotely to the class session. Presentation slides and other digital files can be presented during the training session using the Zoom platform and the student may either focus on these resources or the facilitator. 


To enable connection, you will require the following set-up:

- Sufficient internet connection – Zoom is successful on a 4G network. Any network better than 4G will enhance the student’s experience;
- A PC with a web-camera, microphone and the capacity to run the Zoom application to allow the facilitator to better interact with students in the same manner as a traditional classroom; and
- Sufficient sized monitor or screen
