We have co-created free training for economists on implementing the recommendations of The Green Book, and the supplementary guidance for wellbeing.
What is The Green Book?
The Green Book is the main HM Treasury guidance for officials and analysts who work on business cases and appraisals.
In October 2020, the Chancellor published a review of the Green Book and an updated version.
In July 2021, the supplementary guidance on valuation of wellbeing was published. This was developed with the Centre and its teams by the cross-government Social Impacts Task Force.
Why are we offering this training?
The Green Book review identified implementation as a key priority, and this work focuses on the communication and implementation of the HM Treasury guidance. The key audience is economists and the aim with the training is to increase awareness, confidence and capability.
What does the training include?
The training series includes introductory one-hour sessions and half-day workshops to increase awareness of the guidance and confidence and capability to use it.
- The Green Book and its role in bringing wellbeing into policymaking.
- The role of wellbeing in business cases and in developing the strategic case.
