What do I need to become a member?

No one understands apprenticeships in Scotland better than you. You did the work and you got the rewards. And now, no one is better placed to help and mentor young people as they take their first steps on a career path you know so well.

The Network is open to all apprentices, past and present.

You'll need to nominate a Network Sponsor.

Your Network Sponsor should be someone who can give you a positive reference about what you will bring to the Network. It could be your line-manager or someone you have worked closely with during your apprenticeship.

  • Details about your apprenticeship

  • Your Employer's contact details (you’ll need their permission)

  • Contact details for your Network Sponsor

  • Ideas for what you will bring to the network

  • It should take about 15 minutes to complete the registration form

Join the Network

Apply to be part of the Network and inspire the next generation of talent with your skills, knowledge and experience.
You’ll need to create an account or log in to your existing account.
