Experts in what we do
As you know, here at PDS we’re busy building a new website. As part of the discovery work the content team are doing, we recently carried out a couple of short workshops about the content management system (CMS).
Samuel Kasadha, a work experience student, spent a week shadowing various people at PDS. He wrote about how we helped him understand the work that gets done in parliament, what goes on behind the scenes and the difference between parliament and government.
Matthew Bwye Lera, an 18 year old student spent 3 weeks on work experience at PDS. He talks about what he learnt during his time in Parliament.
Well, this is the first time I’ve written a blog post so I hope you like it! I’m Matthew Bwye Lera, a Spanish guy who has come to do some work experience here.

This week we held the first gathering of Parliament’s Digital Portfolio board. This is a group of senior leaders from across Parliament who are charged with ensuring that we deliver Parliament’s digital portfolio.
