Developing the future

DWP's six new trainee developers
We're a small group of DWP's new trainee developers - we're getting 'hands-on'

DWP as an organisation is working to develop its digital capability and we're a small group within the department that's getting really hands-on to develop the skills and experience we'll need to make the next generation of DWP's digital services.

'Make' is the important word - we want to be able to build, run and iterate services that customers prefer over, say, paper forms or phone calls. This means coding, understanding and applying a true dev-ops approach and, most importantly, making sure we're always fulfilling user needs. We're the first group of trainee developers beginning this journey; left to right in the photo:

  • Paul Bowman
  • Ian Tidmarsh (Me)
  • Nathalie Harrold
  • Mike Morris
  • Adrian Stone
  • Donna Kirk.
  • Paul Anderson

We'll be sharing regular updates on what we're learning and making, and how we're working with the Government Digital Service. If you have any questions, use the comments box and we'll get back to you.
