Our channels in Department for Education Slack are a great place to meet, speak to and get advice from other DfE user researchers.

All civil servant and contractor user researchers should be given Slack access when you join DfE. If not, you can sign up manually here (opens in a new tab). You will need an education.gov.uk email address to join.

#user_research is where the UR leadership team make any important announcements. It's always worth keeping an eye on this channel.

Cross government Slack user research channels

You can also join the cross-government Slack user research channels to meet and talk to user researchers from other government departments. Anybody with a .gov.uk email address can sign up at ukgovernmentdigital.slack.com (opens in a new tab).
