About the course

Does your job require you to be a master wordsmith? Do you want to be able to write speeches that the audience will be thinking about weeks later, or thought-provoking blogs that persuade? If you need to hone your writing skills for your work to have impact, this is the course for you.
Our trainer is Paul Richards, a former special adviser to a government minister with over 20 years' experience. He regularly trains individuals and organisations in the UK, but has also delivered courses in Tanzania, Kenya, Pakistan, Ghana, Croatia, South Africa and Iraq. The course will be very interactive and participants are encouraged to bring real world examples relevant to their own professional situation.

This course will cover

• Speech writing

• Opinion pieces or 'op-eds'

• Blogs

• Tweets and other social media posts

• Promotional materials 

I've already put the training in practice with an interview on the local BBC radio. My answers were full of rhetorical techniques, such as imagery and groups of three. I'm really pleased with how it went, so an immediate result from the training!

This course is open to anyone,regardless of their political affiliation, and we anticipate a politically mixed audience.

Need to spend more time learning the ins-and-outs of the arcane world of Westminster? Confused by legislative timetables, or the difference between the Table Office and the Vote Office?

For newly elected MPs, arriving in the Commons is sure to be exhilarating, but may also be daunting. New MPs are often surprised to find no formal training or advice offered, and are left to find their own way around Parliament’s labyrinthine rules and customs.

If you are an aspiring politician who wants to help make a difference and represent people at a local or national level, this course will help you maximise your chances of selection and election.
