Delegates Speak

“P3E is a novel idea in policy education! The quality and mix of speakers, teachers as well as peers in the cohort is top notch! The highlight being the “hands-on project” where we solve actual challenges and closely observe how government functions. The course is rigorous, so be up for it!”

“The P3E program enabled me to interact with policy experts I’ve followed for years. Great balance of field visits, that help shed preconceived notions; participative classroom and Webinar sessions, that shaped my critical thinking through rigorous discussions and the “Hands On Project” (HOP) that help us experience governance from a practitioner’s perspective. The delegates and the VIF team are extremely supportive and fun and I’ve made many friends.”

“I joined the first edition of P3E in January and I have to say that it is truly one of the best part-time public policy programmes out there! The programme has a diverse blend of academically bent lectures, interactive sessions, and panel discussions to understand the policy-making space with various kinds of stakeholders in the industry. It combines theoretical learning with practical application through a variety of activities and especially the Hands-on project, which gave us the exposure while working with a bureaucrat on areas of national policy priorities.”
