- Build a more diverse and inclusive governance team
Whether you hire school leavers or experienced workers, apprentices can bring fresh skills, experiences and ideas. There’s no upper age limit – your apprentices must simply be over 16, not be in full-time education, and have lived in the UK or EEA for over three years, so it may help demonstrate your commitment to inclusivity as an employer.
- Build practical skills
Apprentices will study a governance qualification accredited by the CGIUKI, gaining practical governance training, professional standards and essential business skills.
- Save on training and recruitment costs
Apprentices are a really cost-effective way to hire and train staff. You'll get government funding towards training costs.
Please note, governance officer apprenticeships are currently available in England only.
