Foundation Apprenticeships

WHAT IS A FOUNDATION APPRENTICESHIP?
Foundation Apprenticeships are a work-based learning opportunity for senior-phase secondary school pupils.  Lasting two years, pupils typically begin their Foundation Apprenticeship in S5. Young people spend time out of school at
college or with a local employer, and complete the Foundation Apprenticeship alongside their other subjects like National 5s and Highers.

It’s a chance to get valuable work experience and gain an industry recognised qualification.  It also lets you try out a career while you’re still at school.



WHO IS IT FOR?
Foundation Apprenticeships are open to pupils entering 5th year. You must have the ability to study at SCQF level 6 (Higher equivalent) in a vocational setting, and meet the entry requirements of the course.  Attainment is measured by ongoing assessment in college and in the workplace.  

WHAT QUALIFICATIONS WILL I GAIN? 
On successful completion of the course, you will achieve a Joint Qualification Certificate for the Foundation Apprenticeship in your chosen subject. This is a group Award at SCQF level 6 which
Comprises a National Progression Award (NPA) and a Scottish Vocational Qualification (SVQ) ​
