    Will this be made available as a podcast or webinar or other for those who cannot make it all the way to London?

      Hi Caroline,

      We are looking into ways of making our Discovery Sessions accessible for people not able to attend in person so watch this space.

    Having a link would be great. Working form an office that is due to close we are looking for every snippet of information that we can find. Would be happy to deliver here from the information if that is an option.

    Are there any plans to deliver this by Lync, to make it more cost effective for people to access, as the location and only being a 2 hour workshop makes it unsuitable for people based in the North

    Just echoing the above comments - script, slides, handouts for local re-briefing or Skype/video etc would be most helpful to those remote from London

    Hi to add to June's comment, as well as helping those in areas where offices are closing, as we get closer to moving to HMRC Regional Offices, it will help those who may be in RDT but would like a change. I assume it will help those who want to move out of the Civil Service as well?

    Hi Susan, is this opportunity open to anyone in DWP or just those in the "East, South East and London" areas?

      Hi Chloe
      The activities posted on the ESEL page are aimed at those in the East, South East and London, we do not expect people to travel long distances to attend.
