Apprenticeships & National Graduate Development Programme


Off-the-Job Training Guidance

The ESFA has circulated draft policy background information and examples as guidance relating to the 20% off-the-job training element required within apprenticeships.  The document can be accessed here.

National Graduate Development Programme (NGDP) 

This year the LGA has received a record number of applications for its National Graduate Development Programme (NGDP), and a number have indicated a preference for a placement in the East Midlands.  The selection process is now underway, but opportunities still remain for councils to offer placements - either to take an NGDP trainee or to pitch in with other councils to share the costs.  The closing date for council sign up is 30 March.  For more information see here.
