What is a graduate scheme?

Graduate schemes and graduate training programmes are offered by many large employers. They typically last a year, but some extend to 18 months or even two years. It's the defined time frame and structure that normally distinguishes a graduate scheme or programme from the wider class of 'graduate job', which is the catch all term for entry-level roles that require people with graduate level education. A single employer can run more than one type of training programme within their organisation and they are common in industries such as accountancy and professional services, management and future leader programmes for high street names and career paths such as HR or marketing.
