Civil Service to deliver thousands of new apprenticeships

The government has said that one in twenty civil servants will be an apprentice by 2025 under new plans that will diversify the pipeline of talent into government.

More than 35,000 apprentices have been recruited since 2015, exceeding the government’s manifesto commitment and establishing the Civil Service as a leading provider of apprenticeships. The new strategy will build on this by committing to five per cent of the UK Home Civil Service being apprentices by 2025.

New targets will also bring government closer to the communities it serves, capitalising on the creation of local hubs to ensure the number of apprenticeship roles in every region reflects local Civil Service workforce numbers.

Heather Wheeler, Parliamentary Secretary in the Cabinet Office, said: “With more than 35,000 apprenticeship starts in the Civil Service since 2015, it’s clear that the door is well and truly open for anyone to get in and get on in government. The new apprenticeship strategy contains a relentless focus on driving up standards in government, building a pipeline of highly-skilled public servants from across the UK to deliver on the people’s priorities. Not only will this improve the quality of public service in the long term, it is also putting young people at the forefront of the government’s work to level up the country.”
