From personal experience we know how complex Westminster can be, and also how little high-quality training exists to explain how things really work.
Our mission at Westminster Skills Centre is to provide outstanding development opportunities for staff and politicians from all political parties, as well for those working in business and civil society. We believe this increased understanding will ultimately lead to more effective decision-making.
Our modules have been designed by our large network of experienced trainers, all of whom are experts in their respective fields from across the political spectrum.

If you work with the media, there are a wealth of unwritten rules you need to know in order to ensure your message cuts through. Hear from our team of senior journalists how the press really works and how to avoid making mistakes that reporters can pounce on.
Does your job require you to be a master wordsmith? Do you want to be able to write speeches that the audience will still be thinking about weeks later? Perhaps you need to produce regular and thought provoking blogs or op-eds to get your message out there? If you need to use excellent writing skills in order for your work to have an impact, then this is the course for you.
