POLICY DEVELOPMENT MANAGEMENT TRAINING ACADEMY – VIRTUAL WORKSHOP SERIES

Policy MTA

The First Nations Public Service Secretariat (FNPSS)’s Management Training Academies (MTAs) provide tools and training tailored to BC First Nations needs from experts in the core competencies: Records and Information Management (RIM), Policy Development, and Human Resources Management (HR). 

Policy is a tool that helps support communities as they achieve their goals and clarifies how governments operate to the benefit of the citizens. Through the Policy MTA, which will be delivered over three virtual half-days on Zoom, participants build an understanding of the purpose and objectives of policy, learn more about how it is used effectively, and engage in discussions on practical and everyday examples of policy at work within communities. The MTA also focuses on creating and sustaining policy frameworks that are aimed at achieving social, governance, economic, and environmental success.

Event Dates: Nov 9, 16, & 23, 2021

Foundations for Professional Communications, an offering from the First Nations Public Service Secretariat and the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology, got off to a great start with our in-person week of learning in January. Pictured here is the incredible cohort of First Nations communicators, and our amazing instructor, Davis McKenzie of Toxw oxw (Becoming Clear) Communications.

The students were able to hone their skills in key areas of communications, and at the end of the week were joined by Howard Grant, Executive Director of the First Nations Summit, and Jehan Casey, Director of the First Nations Public Service Secretariat, who were in attendance as they presented their very own communications plans. All their hard work, commitment, and enthusiasm made this week a huge success, and we are so excited for them as they complete this course and continue their journeys in communications!

Foundations for Professional Communications is a fully accredited course, free of charge for First Nations communicators. If you would like to be added to the mailing list for the next offering, please email: ksposato@fnps.ca.
