Young Academy: New advanced course "Policy Management & Campaigning"
Campaign development & management
The Young Academy started on 20 April 2018 with the new advanced course Policy Management & Campaigning The course content is labelled “Campaign development & campaign management" and introduces participants to the world of political campaigning.
It provides skills in the areas of creative development, successful communication strategy and professional time and resource planning, and qualifies the participants to design and lead socio-political campaigns. The main focus lies not only on the teaching of theoretical knowledge, but also on the areas of communication, management and leadership, which together stand for problem-solving expertise in social tasks in politics.
The advanced course Policy Management & Campaigning includes around 50 teaching units and requires basic knowledge of the Young Academy’s basic course or professional experience. It concludes with an examination and a certificate. Building on this, the FPÖ Education Institute offers the possibility of a Master's degree.
“In an atmosphere where responsibility can be perceived”, the aim of the speakers is to demonstrate models that can be taken directly to the organisational units, “but focusing on performance and team work should not come at the expense of enjoyment in what we’re doing”.
