Not a university?

Unfortunately, only universities can provide the degree level training required for Graduate Apprenticeships.

If you're not a university, you can still support Scotland's next generation of workers. You could be a great Modern Apprenticeship learning provider.

Foundation Apprenticeships allow school pupils to gain work experience alongside a qualification. You could help them gain a valuable qualification and set them on the road to success.
