We are also working in partnership with Skills Development Scotland to pilot Foundation Apprenticeships at SCQF Levels 4 and 5. This currently provides work-based learning opportunities for up to 1000 S3 - S6 pupils across Scotland.
A Modern Apprenticeship is a job which allows people to earn a wage and gain an industry-recognised qualification. For employers, modern apprenticeships help develop their workforce by training new staff, and upskilling existing employees.
Modern Apprenticeships combine a qualification with on-the-job experience. This lets people work, learn and earn at the same time. We contribute towards the costs of their training, through a training provider who works with the business.
MA's can build valuable work experience from day one and gain an accredited qualification which is recognised by the industry. They’ll develop skills and expertise for their current and/or future jobs. Modern Apprenticeships are available at four different levels, some equivalent to a degree.
