 Scottish Apprenticeships


In Scotland there are three different apprenticeship types:

Foundation Apprenticeships Get real work experience during your S5 and S6 years at school and receive a qualification at the end.  

Modern Apprenticeships  Earn, learn on the job and get a qualification at the end. Over 80 different types of Modern Apprenticeships are available.

Graduate Level Apprenticeships Work, earn and get a degree at the same time.
