I currently offer Foundation Apprenticeship placements. What should I do?
Employers are advised to keep in regular contact with your learning provider e.g. college or training facility for advice on delivery and support.
SDS have contracted with learning providers to offer up to 5,000 Foundation Apprenticeships in the 2020 academic year. As a business offering Foundation Apprenticeships, your contribution is crucial in supporting pathways into critical occupations for the Scottish economy. Once pupils are back at school in August, learning providers will be in touch with Employers to finalise FA Placements. Where possible, keep in regular contact with your training provider allowing for longer than normal response times. The latest guidance for Training Providers is available on our dedicated training provider webpage.
For those employers that offered a placement in 2019/20, SDS and SQA released a joint statement on 12/6/2020 explaining how these have been completed.
If you would like to speak to someone, please call the SDS Employer Helpline on 0800 783 6000.
