The Fast Track Apprenticeship programme is a fantastic opportunity for all the young people in this country with ambition, talent and enthusiasm to join one of the greatest organisations in the country, a real force for good in the country – the Civil Service

Fast Track apprentice Sarah Landers said:

I would recommend the Fast Track to anyone. It’s such a fantastic opportunity to learn valuable skills and start a career – all the while earning a decent salary. I’ve had some great experiences on the business scheme and already know what roles I’ll be applying for next. I haven’t looked back since I decided to join the programe!
