Government Digital Services provide different strands of training, resources and support to help Government create and run digital services effectively. These include “Assessors” training which provides training for those assessing digital services against the Digital by Default Service Standard and support and training for Service Managers and digital specialists - for example the Service Manager Induction Programme.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and its partner organisations take up these opportunities regularly and our staff implement what they have learnt in order to build and maintain simple, clear and fast digital services.

We will continue to work with Government Digital Services to create successful digital services so people will prefer to use them.
