National Graduate Development Programme 2017/18: council information pack

Known as the ngdp, the LGA’s flagship management trainee programme offers councils a unique opportunity to grow their own local government leaders.


Every year the ngdp provides the sector with high quality graduates ready to work on strategic projects which contribute to the delivery of your council’s goals.

The ngdp is a two year programme, where graduates are employed by councils and undertake a minimum of three placements. Alongside their employment, the LGA has commissioned SOLACE (Society of Local Authority Chief Executives) to deliver a complementary learning and development offer. These are carried out in parallel so that the graduates can implement their learning whilst working on real projects.
