This chapter surveys how skills for policy analysis have been integrated with educational curricula in Australian universities. It considers education for policy professionals in general, but more specifically the teaching of public policy for public servants. The emergence of policy analysis as a field of study and its development in the context of public service professional education are outlined. The nexus between theory and practice in pedagogy is a key theme. The structure and curricula of current policy analysis programs in Australian universities are summarised. There is indeed a distinctly Australian approach to teaching policy analysis, one that is firmly grounded in an antipodean pragmatism.

Keywords:   Australian policy analysis, higher education policy skills, policy training, public management theory, public management management
