Policy Writing Workshop

If you are interested in having an impact on policy, responding to select committee inquiries or Government consultations you may be interested to attend a free (external) policy writing workshop on 4 March at 17:00. Moving from an academic style of writing to policy writing is an aspect that colleagues can regularly struggle with. The workshop will be led by colleagues from Cambridge University Science and Policy Exchange (CUSPE), alongside Dr Andrew Kaye, Head of International Resilience, at the Government office for Science – All welcome!

Book your place on the workshop through Eventbrite.

Here is the workshop blurb:

Do you want to learn how to influence policy makers and better explain the significance of your research?

This workshop is perfect for anyone seeking to improve their writing skills. We will learn more about writing to support policy development, covering both what civil servants and ministers expect and how to provide the information they really need. This will be an interactive session, including time for Q&A.

Speaker: Dr Andrew Kaye, Head of International Resilience, Government Office for Science

Dr Kaye is currently responsible for coordinating science advice during emergencies. Previously he has been a ministerial speechwriter and worked in government communications. Having completed a PhD in History at the University of Cambridge, Dr Kaye lectured in US history at the Universities of Newcastle and Durham before joining the Civil Service.
