Skills Development Scotland - Foundation Apprenticeships

Skills Development Scotland are supporting young people to build the skills they'll need to become successful in the workplace. Foundation Apprenticeships help young people gain valuable, real-world work experience and access work-based learning while they’re still at school.

For young people it’s the chance to get a head start on their careers by gaining an industry-recognised qualification, work on real projects and broaden their career options when they leave school. And for employers, it’s the chance to attract highly motivated and committed young people who

are willing to learn, identify young people who are right for their businesses and ensure their organisations have people with the necessary skills.
