Modern Apprenticeships support the ethos of lifelong learning by
providing individuals with the opportunity to secure industry
recognised qualifications while earning a wage. The Modern
Apprenticeship programme is open to all ages and is relevant to
individuals starting their career to senior management level.
Employers benefit from a skilled and productive workforce, and from
these qualifications being fully funded by Skills Development
A Modern Apprentice could be a new team member or an existing
employee seeking to increase their capability & confidence.
With the Scottish Govenment's ambition of 30,000 Modern
Apprenticeships available every year by 2020, now is the time to
work with us to secure industry recognised qualifications.

What is involved?
A Modern Apprenticeship provides candidates with vocational
training that is relevant to them, the company and chosen
industry. The scheme isn't only relevant to traditional
industries - Modern Apprenticeships are available in a number of
sectors, with the format of training decided by the appropriate SVQ
for that sector.
Apprentices are encouraged to progress through the various
levels of qualification available, although this isn't the only
focus of the training. A Modern Apprenticeship will also
enhance a range of 'soft skills' to draw upon, including sound
communication, teamwork, problem solving, numerical and IT skills -
all of which are invaluable to any employer.
A Modern Apprenticeship may be completed within a time period
that's suitable to the candidate and employer. In most cases,
apprentices work towards a SVQ at levels 2-5.
