The Govern for Impact Policy Governance Proficiency (PGP) program aims to provide a high-level understanding of governance in theory, principle and practice.  The curriculum draws strongly on the work of John Carver in creating the Policy Governance system and provides  context through the provision of an understanding of approaches to governance. 

The PGP program leads to a certificate denoting the successful completion of an accredited program designed to provide a high standard of governance knowledge and expertise.   It is accessible from anywhere in the world to English-speaking participants who have a good internet connection.   As an international organization, Govern for Impact aims to offer the program in other languages wherever this can be made possible.

The program aims to meet the needs of those who want to equip themselves to play a leadership role in the application of Policy Governance principles and practice, and the furtherance of governance knowledge more generally.

The Policy Governance® Academy run by Miriam Carver provides the highest level of Policy Governance expertise currently available.  More information about the Policy Governance® Academy can be found at
