• Promoting excellence in public participation in Southern Africa

A warm welcome to all our IAP2 Southern Africa members, friends of IAP2, and other interested stakeholders and groups across the African continent. It is indeed a privilege to be part of this growing family of IAP2 and to have the opportunity to engage with you on this platform.

IAP2SA is committed to a year of more interactive engagements aimed at sharing valuable and relevant information. Our objective is to enhance the daily activities and the profession of public participation practitioners, the image of IAP2SA and more so; to ensure that you are kept up-to-date on informative information within the public participation/stakeholder engagement field.

We hope to achieve our objective through the use of various social mediums including, but not limited to, face-to-face training and webinar sessions, LinkedIn and Facebook updates, our Annual General Meeting, and other events that we will be hosting during the year.

We cannot achieve this alone and encourage you to join us on this exciting journey.

Welcome to the NEW IAP2 Global Certificate in P2/Engagement

We are very excited to announce the new IAP2 Global Certificate in P2/Engagement, following two years of development and a global consultation.

Taking the best of stakeholder and engagement training from around the globe, IAP2 has developed a new suite of courses, which can be combined in a variety of ways to create the new five-day certificate programme.

Build your own certificate that best suits your needs and interests with one foundational and compulsory module. Choose either Fundamentals of P2/Engagement if you are a practitioner working as a member of a P2/engagement team, contributing to engagement activities, or IAP2 Way in Challenging Contexts if you are a practitioner with substantial engagement experience.

Add both Designing and Leading Engagement (2 days) and Applying Methods (2 days) to complete your IAP2 Global Certificate in P2/Engagement.

If you are a past training participant, we have options in place so you don’t miss out on being able to attain the new certificate.
