Training and Organisational Development
For over fifty years the Institute has provided an extensive range of executive development programmes, short training courses and organisational development supports for new and experienced managers, administrators and technical staff across the public sector in addition to opportunities for dialogue, debate and exchange of experience and views. At a time of complex and rapid change and given the need for greater accountability, integration and mobility across the public service, our innovative learning approaches enable public servants to build the knowledge and capabilities necessary to lead, manage and immediately apply new insights to their issues and challenges.
Our programmes and interventions are grounded in the experience of our full-time professional staff, all of whom have many years of teaching, training and consulting combined with a deep understanding of the challenges and constraints facing the public sector. The unique combination of public management research, delivery capacity and practical approaches to the toughest issues ensures that the IPA remains unique in its ability to support the ongoing public service reform process.
