Fast track apprentices 2013

Launched in 2013, the Fast Track Apprenticeship Scheme gives talented school-leavers an alternative route into employment. What makes the scheme different from others is the apprentices work in permanent posts at Executive Officer level.

The scheme offers a variety of exciting and challenging roles, from working as a paralegal officer in Birmingham to helping brief ministers in Whitehall.

The apprentices receive training, mentoring and other developmental opportunities to help build their skills. This puts them in a good position to apply for other Civil Service career opportunities at the end of their 2 year placement.

This year’s scheme offers Level 4 apprenticeships in:

  • Business and Administration
  • Finance
  • Information Technology
