Why an apprenticeship?

As an apprentice you will earn while you train. It’s a great career choice whether you are leaving school or college, returning to work after starting a family or looking for a new career. There’s a wide range of jobs on offer.  A job at the Welsh Government is unlike any other in Wales.

At the Welsh Government you’ll be given support and guidance so you can develop your skills in the workplace. You will also need to set aside time to study for your apprenticeship. You’ll be a valued member of the team from day one.

What apprenticeships are available?

We don’t currently have any apprenticeship opportunities open as we have now closed our scheme for 2019. If you’d like to keep updated on the vacancies that we’re advertising, you may want to visit our jobs board:  Welsh Government External Vacancies Board.
