The GovData Academy is the epicentre for staff learning and professional development.

Each member of the team commits to 8 hours of continued professional development a month as part of the GovData Academy, to ensure they are educated on the latest knowledge related to their role, the market and subject matters of further interest.

Other key areas of focus include mentoring, coaching and career planning. This allows people to flourish, be the best they can be, and shape their career path around personal and professional achievement. Through the creation of an empowered, educated and connected culture we create the platform for great customer experience.

The investment in our people is not limited to professional development alone. The welfare of each member of the team is also paramount and we understand how support in this area supplements the well-being of each person. A dedicated Welfare and Wellbeing Officer provides round-the-clock support for the GovData team.

Our future plans include apprenticeship programmes for staff and all activities are based around our GovData 8 TOPS  training principles. We offer blended learning combining e-learning, independent study, group work and tutor-led sessions.

The investment in the GovData Academy is focused on the creation of a workforce that is confident, resilient and committed to our business needs and goals.
