These materials can be used for training to help policy makers and their staff write evidence-based policy briefings. The three units can be combined to make a three day workshop (see sample timetable below) or used individually.

Each unit contains:

  • Facilitators notes (with step by step instructions on how to run the session)
  • Presentation (containing all slides needed for the unit)
  • Summary handout- to be given out to all participants at the end of the unit


By the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • Understand the features of good and bad writing
  • Use concise and precise language
  • Use various methods for planning documents
  • Understand and summarise technical documents
  • Write effective policy briefings
