How did the GDS Academy respond to the COVID restrictions? Barbra Webber, GDS Academy facilitator, explains how they pivoted from face-to-face classrooms to live online learning and shares what they have learned from the experience.
As the Academy turns 5, we spoke to 6 past and present students and staff who told us how the training changed their working lives.
If you are interested in an introduction to emerging technology and how this will impact government now and in the future this new course is for you.
The courses will be available to anyone based in the Midlands working in the Civil Service, public sector or local government.
This year the Academy grew its internship to six universities and added new departments. Find out what the interns learned and how the placements changed their perceptions about working in government.
The GDS Academy has just celebrated its 1,000th student on the digital and agile foundation course. We hear from a past student, whose experience helped her to become a digital lead in her organisation.
When the Academy moved to Government Digital Service (GDS), it put us in an ideal position to collaborate with digital, data and technology communities from across government to understand their learning and development needs.
