Government launches 50 dedicated Cyber Security apprenticeships

The government has nearly quadrupled the number of Civil Service apprenticeships for talented young people across the UK, including 50 dedicated Cyber Security apprenticeships.

The government has nearly quadrupled the number of Civil Service apprenticeships for talented young people across the UK,  including 50 dedicated Cyber Security apprenticeships.

From 2nd February, young people can apply for:

  • 450 Civil Service Fast Track Apprenticeships
  • 300 new Operational Delivery Apprenticeships.

In total the 750 places available is a significant increase on the 200 places available last year.

The 2015 apprenticeships offer a wider range of opportunities than ever before. Roles are available in departments across the country, giving successful applicants the chance to gain valuable work experience and a certified qualification, while being paid a competitive salary.

Minister for the Cabinet Office Francis Maude said: “As part of our long-term economic plan, we are working to ensure that we have the very best people working in the Civil Service. We created the Fast Track Apprenticeship Scheme to recognise that young people who leave school and go straight into the world of work have much to offer. In time, I hope to see some of them rise to fill the very highest posts in the Civil Service.”

Chief Executive of the Civil Service John Manzoni said: “This year we are looking for even more young talented people to join the Civil Service. While receiving fantastic training and experience in a variety of disciplines, successful applicants have the opportunity to work on some incredibly important projects making a real difference from day one. These apprenticeships are here to attract a new generation of talented school-leavers who are looking for an alternative to higher education and want to take up one of the exciting and diverse roles available in the Civil Service. I look forward to welcoming them in September.”
