LONDON, England – The government Analysis Function (AF) strategy is being refreshed and a vital part of this work is understanding the needs of our members across all professions and aspiring analysts.
“It’s important for our strategy to be clear about what we aim to deliver and how we can help you to be the best you can be; allowing you to access the right learning, the best opportunities to make valuable cross-government connections and get the most out of your AF career,” adding, “The Analysis Function Central Team would like to invite you to help shape the future of the Analysis Function by exploring your expectations. What do you want, need and expect from your Function? Whether you are currently working as an analyst or are interested in joining the AF, we’d like to hear from you,” said the news release Wednesday, January 12.
The team has recently been set up helping to ensure that analysis uses the best data and methods to inform policymaking, improves understanding and results in better outcomes for our citizens. The AF covers the analytical professions in the Civil Service, including statisticians, social researchers, economists, and operational researchers.
“During this consultation period, we’d like to gather feedback across the analytical community at one of our dedicated Analysis Function strategy workshops during January. We would really value your input to understand user needs; this could be anything from sharing expert advice or understanding training and development needs,” reads the press release.
