A Modern Apprentice could be an existing or new employee:

  • You may already have an employee who you wish to develop further - we can meet with you and discuss the most suitable Modern Apprenticeship.
  • You may like to offer a job and training to a young person. If the job would likely lead to craft, technician or management level then the Modern Apprenticeship programme is a perfect solution.

Apprentices receive training to match your business growth needs. As an employer, you can pass on your experience, supporting your apprentice's development.

In a recent Government study 75% of businesses stated that they saw Modern Apprenticeships as being of great importance to their businesses. Those involved in the programme found an improved proficiency, morale and retention of staff and over 85% were very satisfied with the relevance of the training to their specific needs.

There is funding available:
As an employer you could benefit from our direct access to Skills Development Scotland’s (SDS) funding. There are funding opportunities that support individuals who are 16 years and over across a range of MA occupational areas.
