Apprenticeships within the Civil Service have huge potential to improve social mobility, strengthen the skills base, widen opportunities, and promote the principles of lifetime learning.

As the UK’s leading provider of tech and digital apprenticeships, QA has consistently partnered with the Civil Service, and the wider public sector, to develop the tech and leadership capabilities civil servants need for success right now, and in the future.  

Our apprenticeship programmes focus on the most in-demand tech skills relevant to a modern Civil Service, including data, cyber, IT, software development, cloud and DevOps (see programmes here). Learners can further enhance their skills via our cutting-edge digital learning platform, Cloud Academy, which offers 10,000+ hours of additional content such as videos, quizzes and labs. 

QA’s industry-leading partnership with Microsoft enriches a variety of our programmes with optional – and funded – Microsoft content and certifications.

Take advantage of the Apprenticeship Levy to embed social mobility and skills development in your department, empowering the Civil Service to achieve its goals for the community faster.
