DfE Architecture

This site documents the architecture principles, standards and guidance that we expect teams working within the Department for Education (DfE) to follow when designing services.

It complements the UK Government Service Manual and its technology section, which covers service design more broadly.

It should be used in conjunction with the DfE Digital Technical Guidance, when building digital services.
