Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2016

4 March 2016

Now in it's sixth year, Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2016 - which ran from 29 February to 4 March - shows how Modern Apprenticeships work for businesses, individuals and the Scottish economy.

Organised by Skills Development Scotland, the campaign highlights the commitment of businesses that have decided to invest in the skills of their workforce.

It also showcases the successes of apprentices who have chosen to get a job, get paid and get qualified to develop their careers.

To celebrate Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2016 and to showcase our amazing Modern Apprentices, our assessors took selfies with their learners during their visits. You can check these out on our Facebook page.  

Our Chairman Bill Ure, also visited GMG Contractors in Ballieston.

GMG Contractors, based in the East End of Glasgow, are specialists in all types of roofing, plastering, screeding and rendering and have been one of Scotland's leading specialists trades contractors for over 20 years. The company believes that training and developing their staff, with programmes such as the Modern Apprenticeship Programme, bring benefits not only for the individual learner but for the company as a whole.  

SDS wants businesses, industry, colleges, councils, training providers and those with a shared interest in the success of the Modern Apprenticeships to back the week and encourage many more employers to take on apprentices.
