Fast Track Apprenticeships
Opportunities for school leavers and non-graduates in the Civil Service are rapidly expanding and this year is no exception. The Civil Service is hiring 750 apprentices in 2015 through two corporate intermediate and higher apprenticeship schemes - the Civil Service Fast Track and Operational Delivery apprenticeship schemes. Our schemes show that a degree is certainly not essential for an ambitious young person to excel in the Civil Service.
This blog will feature insights from current apprentices and the business areas that are hiring them.
