Every year, we award funding to learning providers for Graduate Apprenticeships (GA). If you're given a funding award, you’ll be appointed and supported by one of our Development and Delivery Executives (DDE).
Here’s what you need to do to prepare for your award activation:
Sign your funding award
You’ll have to sign and return the funding award to Skills Development Scotland. There are instructions about how to do this in your Award Letter.
Speak to your DDE
Meet with your appointed Development and Delivery Executive. They’ll guide you through the process for delivering a Graduate Apprenticeship award.
You’ll need to get a Funding and Information Processing System (FIPS) Licence Agreement and provide the details of delegated authorities who require access.
Find out all about FIPS by watching the training videos and reading the how to guides.
Prepare for recruitment
Develop a recruitment process and start up activity. You will be required to provide regular recruitment updates on your Development and Delivery Executive.
Understand the programme conditions
Make sure your colleagues and your employers are aware of the responsibilities in the FAQs.
