National Graduate Development Programme

Local councils are looking for the next generation of managers to lead critical projects and services that have tangible, everyday outcomes for people's lives. The National Graduate Development Programme (NGDP) seeks to match bright, passionate graduates with councils where they can deliver key projects and amazing value for money.

Candidate applications for the NGDP are currently closed.

For councils interested in taking part, you are able to sign up to the NGDP for Cohort 26 until Thursday 29 February 2024 via the button below. Please visit the NGDP for councils section for more information.
