<a href=""><b>24 – 28 November 2014</b></a>

This course gives participants a thorough understanding of how to influence the policy making process in their own context to achieve policy change. You will learn skills to help you plan and deliver effective advocacy strategies; enhance your ability to lobby decision makers; and gain confidence in the ways in which you relate to different audiences. You will also have a more thorough understanding of power dynamics in an advocacy context.

<b>Objectives of the course</b>

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

• Be able to identify different approaches to advocacy and the values and strategies that underlie them
• Be familiar with the stages of the advocacy planning cycle and be better equipped to build an advocacy strategy
• Be able to analyse the external environment and policy processes identify appropriate ‘levers of influence’
• Be aware of power dynamics and the role it plays in achieving advocacy success
• Have examined how an integrated advocacy campaign can successfully combine lobbying, media work and popular mobilisation
• Have reviewed appropriate tools and methods for monitoring and evaluating advocacy initiatives.

<b>Course format and costs</b>

This course has two parts: a 5 day face to face course which will take place in Oxford, UK; and a 50 minute one-to-one coaching session after the course (via Skype) with the course trainer, focusing specifically on your needs. This individual, tailored coaching will support the individual to apply the learning from the course to their work, and offer the opportunity to work through current challenges, difficulties and opportunities with a highly experienced practitioner. The available dates and times for coaching will be provided by the trainers in advance of the course. Coaching terms and conditions will be provided upon application. The cost of the course will be £1150 (non-residential) or £1399 residential (including 4 nights of accommodation).
