Scottish Apprenticeship Week

Scottish Apprenticeship Week celebrates the benefits apprenticeships bring to individuals, businesses and the economy.

Scottish Apprenticeship Week is a nationwide celebration of apprenticeships. It's a time when everyone can promote the benefits of work-based learning to people, employers and Scotland.

Scottish Apprenticeship Week shines a spotlight on the benefits that work-based learning brings to: 

  • people of all ages and backgrounds 

  • employers of all sizes 

  • Scotland’s economy 

Apprenticeships create the skills every generation needs and every employer wants. This year’s campaign shows that apprenticeships give people high-quality opportunities. This supports them to achieve their full potential.  

Help us show the valuable contribution apprenticeships make to people, employers and the economy. Get involved in #ScotAppWeek24. There's lots going on in our events calendar, too!

Apprenticeships support the Skills Generation

For generations Scottish Apprenticeships have: 

  • powered potential 

  • passed on the skills to thrive 

  • built businesses to prosper 

  • energised the economy

Apprenticeships support the Scottish Government’s ambition to harness people’s skills and talents. This helps ensure that Scotland remains a successful nation.

People get the skills to thrive, thanks to employers working with:  

  • learning providers  

  • colleges and universities  

  • schools   

Foundation, Modern and Graduate Apprenticeships are backed by employers. That's because they can find and develop talent with the right skills to support them – now and in future.
