The Graduate Certificate in Policy and Data enhances the specialist skills of Australian Public Service staff, and meets professional development needs for present and future governance and policy challenges. The Graduate Certificate is designed to cultivate the core capabilities of the policy profession in Westminster-style democracies. These include all aspects of the policy process from strategy and design, to delivery and evaluation. This course fosters the skills that underpin these capabilities, including the ‘soft’ skills of relationship management and communication and the more technical skills of analysis and implementation. Please note, this course is currently delivered under contract with a government agency, and is only available to staff nominated by that agency. If you are interested in a public policy degree, please see the Graduate Certificate in Public Policy (SCC101).
