IAP2 Engagement Essentials IAP2 Training Module

Coming soon, Melbourne and Sydney

About the Certificate

Often described as the 'tasting plate' for IAP2 Australasia training, this course is the comprehensive introduction to the core concepts and language of community and stakeholder engagement, in a contemporary Australasian context. 

Participants will be provided with core concepts upon which to plan, design, facilitate and implement successful engagement processes. This module will discuss the essential elements of engagement practice (context, scope, people, purpose and influence and relationships), along with the benefits of delivering high quality engagement processes.

This module introduces Standards for Practice, the IAP2 Code of Ethics and provides a clear definition of engagement, preparing participants for professional practice. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their own role and experiences in community and stakeholder engagement, whilst recognising opportunities for their future training needs.

This is the compulsory first day of training in the IAP2 Australasia Certificate in Engagement.
