  • Apprenticeships - The LGA has an extensive support programme for councils to help them develop sustainable apprenticeship programmes that deliver on a council’s strategic objectives. 
  • T-Levels - Launched in September 2020, and supported by the LGA as a national programme, these new technical qualifications give 16 to 18 year olds a technical alternative to A levels and offer a great opportunity for councils. 
  • Graduate routes - The National Graduate Development Programme (NGDP) is the LGA’s well-established programme to identify and train the future leaders of local government.
