Both will attempt to force their way into the county's Championship and one-day seam attacks next season.
Miles, an 18-year-old all-rounder, from Swindon, has just completed his studies at Filton College and will join the staff on a full-time basis. Taylor, from Chipping Norton, also 18, took his A Levels this summer and is now looking to concentrate fully on developing his cricket.
Gloucestershire Academy director Owen Dawkins, said: "Craig played his first second XI game for us at the age of 14. He has developed well as a bowling all-rounder and will spend this winter working with our strength and conditioning coach Chris Bodman.
"Matt has the ability to bowl a nagging line and length while moving the ball around.
"He has also been with us a number of years and it is great to see so many young players graduating from the academy to the professional ranks."
Miles made his LV= County Championship debut for Gloucestershire against Northamptonshire at Bristol last year.
