GCS 2020 is the improvement programme to ensure our profession delivers future best practice. Our mission is to make the best, standard.
We need to keep improving government communications and make sure our professional practice continues to deliver an exceptional standard of world class communication. We also want to build fulfilling careers for our practitioners.
This is essential work. Science, technology and society are changing at an exciting and sometimes bewildering pace. Resources have to be managed and we need more complex skills and better leadership to meet these challenges.
Every day, our aim is to make the best, standard. This means we must continually improve our practice to serve the people, business and communities of the UK.

The GCS 2020 improvement programme is made up of four projects covering leadership, standards, people and scale. Its goal is to create tangible improvements to the way we work, creating an even more effective and efficient GCS.
Phase 1 of the GCS2020 Programme ran from June 2019 to April 2020, successfully delivering fourteen new tools and products which have been added to the GCS Canon of Professional Practice.
Phase 2 of the GCS2020 Programme is scheduled to commence in October 2020.
Between May and September 2020, the focus will be on fully embedding the new tools into the business.
