The Department currently employs 43 diverse and talented apprentices working right across the organisation in policy, admin and PA support roles. Most are studying towards a Level 4 qualification in business administration, though we also have apprentices working towards finance and project delivery qualifications. This time next year we will be welcoming the very first batch of policy officer apprentices which is a brand new apprenticeship that MHCLG helped design. We are also expecting to welcome our first Cyber and Digital apprentices next year, and offer a range of apprenticeships to existing staff including the Level 6 Chartered Manager Degree apprenticeship.
