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

Our apprentices

Hear from some of our network members about what it means to them.

Bethany Welsh, Graduate Apprentice at Balfour Beatty

“Being a part of Scotland’s Apprentice Network gives me a platform to share my experiences with future apprentices, employers and industries. The network is a great way to communicate and connect with likeminded people.”

Luke Taylor, former Modern Apprentice at West Lothian Council

"As part of Scotland’s Apprentice Network, I'm able to promote apprenticeship opportunities and raise awareness of the land based industry. The activities through the network let me share my story and inspire others.”

Rebecca Steele, Modern Apprentice at Arnold Clark

“Being a member of Scotland’s Apprentice Network has improved my confidence greatly. I never thought I’d be able to talk in front of groups but now I’m not as nervous and I can do it!”
