Participants learn from expert speakers on systems transformation, outcomes thinking, understanding demand and need, asset-led development, co-production, co-design, service re-design, behavioural insights, creating coaching conversations, understanding digital innovations, using data and evidence, leading across boundaries, and driving change in a political environment. Participants are supported to apply this learning to a priority area of their work.
We’re seeking participants who are committed to making a difference in key areas, keen to apply the latest thinking and approaches to realising outcomes, and eager to apply the ideas, assets and energy to all parts of the system.
The Public Service Transformation Academy is a certified social enterprise launched in 2016 to deliver the Cabinet Office Commissioning Academy to continue the Public Service Transformation Network’s knowledge transfer mission. We are a not-for-profit partnership comprising charities, social enterprises, professional networks, businesses and universities together with local, heath and civil service bodies.
