Apprenticeship Scheme at Basildon Council

Basildon Council is committed to creating opportunities for all and to supporting young people in gaining experience and employment.

This is achieved through our comprehensive Apprenticeship training programme, which includes:

  • adapting to the work environment
  • understanding responsibilities
  • health and safety
  • managing performance
  • developing an awareness of good customer service and what it involves.
