There are many routes to developing in the Civil Service and an apprenticeship is one of the most rewarding experiences to complete – they can, quite literally, turn someone’s life around. Apprentices themselves gain new skills while working, a qualification and a new network of friends. Managers benefit from engaged employees who they see developing through their work and employers benefit from all this and more, helping to attract and retain skilled employees.
