Foundation Apprenticeships

Foundation Apprenticeships (FA) have been developed to help young people gain valuable, real-world work experience and access work-based learning while they’re still at school.

Whether you want to go to college or university, do a further apprenticeship or go straight into work, a Foundation Apprenticeship can help. 

With this work-based learning opportunity you’ll spend time between school, college and with an employer. You’ll contribute to real-life projects in the work place which will complement what you’ll be learning in the classroom and at college.

The qualification takes two years to complete and you undertake a Foundation Apprenticeship alongside your other subjects like National 5s and Highers and it all adds up to an industry-recognised qualification equivalent to 1-2 Highers.

Foundation Apprenticeships are linked to key sectors of the Scottish economy, so you are getting industry experience which will help kick-start a successful career in your chosen field.

Dundee and Angus College is offering 11 Foundation Apprenticeship programmes, starting in 2020 summer term:
