Read about our latest cohort
"My favourite aspect of the ngdp is the wide variety of work you can get involved with. Each placement is different but ultimately gets to the heart of what local government is all about; making a difference to the lives of the residents and communities you serve."
"The ngdp has given my career in local government a strong start and is helping me become a ‘21st Century public servant' with greater commercial awareness, diverse experience, flexibility and strong collaboration skills."
"If you want to see the changes you are making, work closely with communities on the issues that matter to them, thrive in challenging situations and enjoy responsibility – the ngdp is for you."
"As a graduate I have been given responsibility for a number of high profile, important projects from an early stage, and because in Local Government you are so closely connected with service delivery, you know that the work you do will have real and direct benefits for residents."
"Being on the ngdp at Brent has given me a fantastic opportunity to take on challenging and complex work with real responsibility, and lets me see first-hand the tangible difference this makes to local people and communities."
"I love being part of a programme which values me, develops me and where I get a real opportunity to make a difference to the people in my community."
