This Pecha Kucha session will focus on how to manage a public service fellowship to achieve optimum policy impact.
The session will cover a year’s cycle of the Crook Public Service Fellowship scheme at the University of Sheffield from advertisement to launch. It will illustrate the main activities, challenges and impacts achieved by the projects.
The scheme provides an opportunity for future leaders in the public and not-for-profit sectors to take time away from their day job and immerse themselves in a project with academic colleagues on a pressing policy issue.
Crook Public Service Fellows benefit from:
- Gaining further knowledge in their field of expertise
- Building professional networks with leading academics in their field
- Enhancing their personal development
- Producing high-quality work of value to policymakers and practitioners
The current cohort is working on the theme of ‘Children’s Chances’. Past cohorts have been ‘The Housing Challenge’ and ‘Democracy’.
At the end of the programme, fellows produce a paper, policy brief or report and are invited to present their findings at a launch event for senior policymakers, practitioners and academics.
