Aim is to show how government carries out user-centred design to create inclusive services

 

The Government Digital Service (GDS) Academy has launched a new one day  course  on research and design in government.

The Academy’s purpose is to transform the way government designs services for its users, offering public servants training in agile and digital project management techniques.

The aim of the research and design course is to show how government carries out user-centred design to create inclusive services that are easy for people to use.

The course will cover what user centred design is and why it is  important; how user centred design is done in an agile team; and how the different disciplines in user centred design work together.

The course is open to civil servants interested in design and user research in government and that want to work more effectively with designers and researchers.  It wants to be the beginning of a further learning and development journey towards becoming a user-centred design specialist.

This course is open to any member of staff at any Civil Service grade. Applicants can  sign up  for the course which is available in Leeds in mid-February or in London in early March.
