Our targets and statistics for apprenticeships

Coronavirus update

Subject to the ongoing situation, it's essential that we continue recruiting safely. Therefore, interviews and communication will be virtual wherever possible and this will be communicated to you directly by the hiring manager.

Please also expect that advert closing dates and interview dates may change as required. We still continue to welcome applications for our current roles and wish you the best of luck with your application.

We would welcome applications especially for our most critical roles to ensure we're supporting our residents

We have a public sector target around new apprenticeships starts. This target runs from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2021 and is set at 2.3 per cent of the total number of council employees based on headcount. We are required to report annually on our progress towards this target and have now submitted our second report to the Department for Education covering the period 2018-19.

The information is taken from our second annual return to the Department for Education detailing our progress towards meeting the Public Sector Apprenticeship Target (GOV.UK)
