Are you a civil service apprentice?

Join PCS - the union for civil service apprentices

PCS membership can provide security, strength and support:

  • Six months' FREE membership: If you're a new PCS member undertaking an apprenticeship on a temporary contract you're entitled to 6 months free PCS membership.
  • National agreement with PCS: Your pay, training, job security and conditions are regulated by a national agreement, signed between the Cabinet Office and PCS and the other civil service unions.
  • Local advice, guidance and support: Your local PCS union learning rep (ULR) will provide friendly and helpful support on a range of issues.
  • Learning and qualifications: If you need support to pass your endpoint assessment, your union learning rep (ULR) can assist you in accessing the relevant training and learning opportunities. 
  • Know your rights: It's important to understand what you are entitled to, and what a high-quality apprenticeship should look like. Find out more.
