Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2020 – Employer Perspectives

Apprentices are employed across Scotland in a wide range of jobs in sectors including engineering, construction, financial and business services, health and social care, digital technology, tourism and food and drink.

Last year there were over 28,000 Modern Apprenticeship starts across a wide range of sectors.

This includes Graduate Apprenticeships, which provide the opportunity to achieve qualification up to Master’s degree level whilst in paid employment.

There has also been a growth in opportunities for school pupils in the senior phase to take up a Foundation Apprenticeship as a subject alongside their Nationals and Highers.

Watch the video to hear from some of our Apprenticeship Employers about why they invest in Apprenticeships.
