Influencing the Senedd can achieve lasting change.  This online course will give you the knowledge, tools, tips and contacts you need to make a difference.

Online session via Zoom with interactive sessions and full course materials

Many organisations in Wales engage with the Senedd as well as Welsh Government, aiming to raise awareness for their cause as well as changing the law.  But navigating the Senedd’s business and working with politicians can be challenging.  This course will help you to avoid the pitfalls by learning from the team at Wales’ most influential think tank. 

What it’s about

This course will help you to understand:

  • when to target the Senedd
  • different opportunities to influence and how to use them, including:
    • giving evidence to committees
    • shaping primary and secondary legislation
    • organising briefings and events.
  • the importance of the Welsh budget. 

It’s an invaluable follow-on from our session on influencing Welsh Government, but will also be useful as a stand-alone course. 

Who should attend

The course will be of interest to everyone who wants to be heard by the Senedd including:

  • charities, social enterprises and other voluntary groups 
  • professional associations and representative bodies
  • academics seeking policy impact from their research findings
  • grassroots campaigners.

What previous participants said

The course is delivered via Zoom, from 9.30 to 12.30 with a coffee break. It consists of a mix of presentations by our expert team, groups discussions, interactive sessions and small group tasks.  

Following the session, learners will receive the slides and a recording.

The training will be delivered in English.
