Over the past decade, the approach to regulation has changed significantly. Regulatory agencies are expected to be innovative and adaptive to maximise the effectiveness of regulatory programs. They must provide a high standard of regulatory protection, with minimal burden on the regulated communities and with minimal operating costs.
This often involves building relationships with the regulated community and applying a more risk-based and discretionary approach to decision-making. As a result of this increasing demand on regulatory officers, the role of the modern regulator is more complex, nuanced and challenging than ever before.
Our suite of regulatory workshops is specifically designed to build both soft and hard regulatory skills that characterise a modern, effective and efficient regulatory officer. We focus on improving officers’ ability to make sound decisions under pressure, handle uncertainty, engage in sensitive and complex negotiations and represent their organisation with clarity and authority.
From Essential concepts in regulation through to Regulation, risks and harms, our workshops are designed as a complementary suite for managers and regulatory teams. The program builds on participants’ existing knowledge of the operational aspects of regulation—the hard regulatory skills—and develops the higher-level, nuanced components of regulation—the soft regulatory skills.
