Start of the Young Academy 2020
Employment-friendly course “Politics and Political Management”
On Saturday, 7 March 2020, the 7th class of the Young Academy was started with the title “Politics and Political Management”. More than 20 young FPÖ politicians and employees from all provinces met in Vienna for the first module “Fundamentals of communication”.
FBI Managing Director Klaus Nittmann emphasized how important a quality education is for young party functionaries and was pleased by the great interest and dedication of the participants, who benefit from this course in their work as representatives of the party and advocates of the FPÖ’s agenda, ideas and views. Course instructor Dietmar Heuritsch: “This basic course on practical politics is intended as a broad-based education to equip our young representatives for participating in political contests.”
The Young Academy is a nationwide education program of the FPÖ Education Institute and is directed at young functionaries and representatives. To date, roughly 90 young people have received training to further their ambitions to participate in government at the municipal level, in provincial parliaments, the national parliament and in ministerial cabinet positions. The education program primarily covers the areas of communication and rhetoric, the Austrian constitution, the history of the Republic of Austria and its political parties, PR, marketing and media training as well as political management and leadership.
