A Level 4/5 Foundation Apprenticeship is picked as a subject choice at S3 and up to S6. The three subjects are Construction, Hospitality or Automotive.
A pupil will be set a project by an employer and get support from experts to develop, deliver and complete it throughout the school year. The project will then be assessed by a learning provider, such as a college.
In 2020, more pupils will have the chance to benefit from work-based learning at SCQF Levels 4 and 5. The pilot is being offered as a subject choice in more schools across Scotland with a range of learning providers.
