Policy into Practice

Training / Workforce Development Packages

Product Description

Policy into Practice (PiP) is a bespoke training programme to support the implementation of new ways of working or embed legislation, policies, procedures and guidance into frontline practice.

Outputs from PiP training can be written up as practice guidance documents and, if customers also have an APPP site, can be included as part of local good practice content.

Experience and expertise

The practice arm of Policy Partners Project is led by Sam Mayne. Programmes are developed and led with oversight from Policy Partners Project associate Emeritus Professor of Social Work John Harris (see About Us).


Outcomes and outputs are identified and agreed in advance with the customer. The training can be measured against these to provide an assessment of impact.
