The Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) offers Level 3 and Level 4 Apprenticeships.

In total, DExEU has had 19 Level 4 Apprentices start through the Civil Service Fast Track Apprenticeship Programme; and two Level 3 Apprentices. From the time DExEU was formed this equates to four starts in 2016, and 17 in 2017, of which:

  • 2016: Four Level 4 Apprentices

  • 2017: 15 Level 4 Apprentices and 2 Level 3 Apprentices.

Through apprenticeships, the Civil Service aims to enhance diversity and improve social mobility; strengthen the skills base of our current and prospective workforce; and provide high quality learning opportunities that are embedded into workforce planning and professional career paths.
