Government Communications Service

Why this professional offer is important in relation to EU Exit

Government Communication Services offers an extensive comms professional curriculum for communicators at all levels from novice through advanced. It reflects the Modern Communication Operating Model and it's particularly important now as we implement the United Kingdom's exit form the European Union.

This support covers all aspects of communication including strategic communications, media and campaigns, strategic engagement, internal communications, digital communications and leadership. We have a key role in supplying timely and relevant information to our audiences in a way that fits in with their lives. That means communicators must listen as well as broadcast, think about audiences not channels, master new digital technologies and constantly update skill sets in order to keep ahead of the extraordinary pace of change.

GSS is here to deliver world-class communications that support the government’s priorities and helps deliver its programmes. The UK's exit from the EU is one of the most challenging programmes of work to implement and will involve communicating with the public, industries, media, partners, stakeholders and civil servants. Excellent communications protects and enhances the reputation of the UK at home and overseas. Communication is crucial in successful policy implementation. Whether it is raising awareness, influencing attitudes and behaviour, promoting effective operation of government services, supporting our citizens in times of crisis or helping them to understand decisions made.

GCS has six training sessions that specifically relate to EU Exit capability, these are:
