Modern Apprenticeships

A Modern Apprenticeship provides you with vocational training relevant to your employment, so you can earn while you learn and gain a recognised qualification while in work.

For employers, modern apprenticeships help develop their workforce by training new staff, and upskilling existing employees. Modern Apprenticeships are supported by funding from Skills Development Scotland and Modern Apprentices could be eligible for 100% funding depending on their age and eligibility criteria.
