Mandatory training for the Government Statistician Group
Everyone who works with official statistics is in the Government Statistical Service (GSS). If you have also passed a badging exercise you will automatically join the Government Statistician Group (GSG).
If you are unsure whether or not you are in the GSG please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can check for you
When you join the GSG your name gets passed to the Learning Academy who will invite you to three mandatory courses as you settle into your new career:
- Government Statistician Group – Induction course (you should be invited to attend this course at some point during your first six months in your first GSG post)
- Government Statistician Group – Foundation course (you should be invited to attend this course 6 to 18 months after you join the GSG)
- Career checkpoint course (you should be invited to this 18 months after you join the GSG)
If you have joined the GSG as a fast streamer, the mandatory introductory courses you attend may differ from the rest of the GSG.
