Scottish Apprenticeship Advisory Board

The Scottish Apprenticeship Advisory Board (SAAB) gives employers and industry a leading role in developing apprenticeships in Scotland. Their knowledge and experience will help inform decisions about the future of apprenticeships. 

This will ensure apprenticeships develop to meet industry and economic need, fair work, and job opportunities. So, employers can be confident that apprenticeships are designed to build the right skills for their businesses. And apprentices will know their qualification can properly prepare them for work in their industry.

The Board was created following recommendations from the Commission for Developing Scotland's Young Workforce. It's led by employers and representatives from industry bodies across a range of sectors. 

Skills Development Scotland will work with the Board to ensure a demand-led, responsive and adaptive work-based learning system for employers and the Scottish economy. To find out more please visit our dedicated SAAB webpage
