Description

Welcome to GCS!

This course is an introductory course and it is for anyone new to government communications.

What Will it Cover?

This one day course will give you an overview of the basics of government communications and highlight opportunities for your own professional development.

It is designed to give you an introductory overview of the key MCOM disciplines and the OASIS campaigns model. which is designed to aid government communicators to deliver world class communications. The OASIS model should be used by all government communications professionals regardless of discipline, department or grade.

It is also a good opportunity to network outside your home department, and is best suited for those who have been in government for less than 6 months.

By the end of the course you will:

  • Understand the OASIS model and how to apply it;

  • Have a broad understanding of the four key MCOM disciplines including strategic communications; media, campaigns and digital; strategic engagement; and internal communications;

  • Be familiar with the role and function of the Government Communications Service;

  • Know how you can develop your skills and access learning and development opportunities.


Please note: the final schedule for the day will be circulated a few days before the event.
