Apprenticeship Development Programme (ADP)

Our ADP provides you with a structured learning environment that supports you to become a well-rounded consultant and accelerate your career as far and fast as possible.

You will be provided with a development path that is aligned to our internal competency frameworks and supports your academic learning through your apprenticeship. The ADP will help you and your manager monitor and plan your learning needs in order for you to progress in your career with us.

The ADP is designed to be:

  • a platform to enhance knowledge and gain first-hand experience;
  • a training schedule to support and capture your learning and development needs and achievements;
  • a learning tool document to track and report the development of your capabilities.

The five year ADP incorporates a training programme that will provide you with technical and behavioural training to enhance your knowledge and skills and will run alongside the completion of your degree level studies that you will complete within your apprenticeship.

You will either work four days a week and attend college/university one day a week, or attend on a block release basis every few weeks. Over the course of five years you will gain a degree whilst gaining valuable work experience. 

At the end of your five year programme we expect you to be at the same level as a graduate who has completed the graduate development programme.
