The Scheme of MPs’ Business Costs and Expenses recognises courses that focus on a Member's parliamentary work as a 'claimable cost', which can be reclaimed from the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA).


This course covers cross-party best practice and focuses on parliamentary work. No advice is offered on political campaigning, and there is no political debate.
