SP=EED (Successful Planning = Effective Engagement and Delivery) is PAS’s practical guide to better community engagement and is mentioned in Scottish Government guidance.

SP=EED Verification is a two-part programme which certifies competence in using the SP=EED approach and that you have completed a written reflective-learning assessment. It also develops interpersonal and other skills required to deliver effective engagement. Part 1 is an interactive training workshop and Part 2 is a written reflective-learning assessment.

Previous participants have come from planning authorities across Scotland, a range of planning consultancies, the renewables sector, communications consultancies, third sector organisations, academia and community groups.

Our next date for SP=EED Verification training is Thursday 06 October 2016
5.30-9.00pm (Edinburgh).
