Are you an employer thinking of taking on a Modern Apprentice?

Read our Frequently Asked Questions below:

  • What are the advantages of the Modern Apprenticeship programme for an employer?

    Apprentices can bring a breath of fresh air to your team, enthusiasm and ideas which could help and motivate the rest of the team.  Apprentices can be trained to fill the roles needed to grow a business and can develop into an integral part of the team.  Employers of all company sizes support young people by offering Modern Apprenticeships.  In return, Apprentices can prove to be a sound investment, contributing to increased efficiency and productivity.

    Employers may be eligible to receive financial support to fully meet the costs of the training including a bonus for mentoring duties.  

    Visit  Skills Development Scotland's website for up to date information on current incentives for employers to switch onto the Modern Apprenticeship programme.
