The Public Service Transformation Academy
The Public Service Transformation Academy is a not-for-profit social enterprise, with RedQuadrant as the lead partner and delivery partners including the Whitehall & Industry Group (lead delivery partner), NCVO, Browne Jacobson LLP, E3M, TSIP, the Alliance for Useful Evidence, Local Gov Digital, Collaborate, Numbers for Good, Basis and members of the Public Service Transformation Network.
Our mission is to drive better outcomes for people and communities by developing the local, civil, social and health sectors’ capabilities to collaborate, innovate and lead.
The founders of this academy share some core beliefs: That most of the problems the public sector and society is dealing with have a significant underlying level of complexity. This complexity differs – it can arise from having to deal with multiple stakeholders, from complex citizen needs, from a need for cultural or behavioural change, or from a complex system of organisations that need to work together. Often, all these sources contribute to the complexity at the same time.
The PSTA operates with three main boards. The main board consists of RedQuadrant, WIG, a non-executive Chair, two representatives of the members, a Cabinet Office representative, and a Public Service Transformation Network representative, with one additional member representing the wider sector.
The Advisory board provides advice to the entity board along with subject matter
The Design Authority provides quality assurance to all our work and has oversight of our accreditation for courses, trainers, and certification.
