The Civil Service Professional Development Framework for Policy Professionals describes the skills and knowledge required by policy professionals in bringing together the evidence base to advise decision makers.
There are three broad themes: 'Analysis and the Use of Evidence', “Politics and Democracy” and “Policy Delivery”. Section 3.5 (Page 18) highlights the importance of ‘User Centred Design’ in policy, “developing policy with the impact of end users at the forefront of thinking.”
We continue to build the capability of the policy professionals advising decision makers across government – through teams such as Policy Lab, who support many projects across government on user centred design in policy development.
