The Civil Service is the body of personnel that supports the national and local governance of the United Kingdom. This includes supporting ministers at the highest level of government, to delivering services that directly impact the public. It employs over 510,000 people in a range of departments from culture and sport, energy and the environment, work and pensions, housing and communities, to foreign affairs and national security. The median pay for someone working in the Civil Service is just over £30,000. Information about this can be found here. The project in this area will be looking at policy development from idea generation to impact and from research to recommendation. Students will also write a speech for the minister to launch the policy.

Driving Question: How do we shape a policy to fight climate change fairly and equitably?
