About Public Management (Local Policy and Leadership) at University of Birmingham

Today's public practitioners must demonstrate clear understanding in the management of public services and contemporary public policy. They must also be able to offer confident leadership in formulating and implementing appropriate strategies to address them. For more than 40 years the Institute of Local Government Studies has been providing a range of programmes to meet these needs.

Participants choose either the core Public Management Programme or specialist streams in Public Management (Local Policy and Leadership) or Public Management (Health and Social Care). The programme provides an opportunity for you to develop your understanding of democratic governance and the challenges of improving performance and co-ordinating public services and governmental processes. You will reflect on the changing demands affecting public organisations locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, building your knowledge base, leadership skills and self-confidence.

Who is the programme for - This programme builds knowledge, skills and confidence for careers in the local government and associated sectors. We also attract international students seeking to learn about modern local public service delivery, recent graduates seeking a further career to underpin a future career in the public sector and local politicians seeking to expand the knowledge base in local public policy and management.
