Scottish Apprenticeship Week 4-8 March 2019

Celebrating the benefits apprenticeships bring to businesses, individuals and the economy


Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2019: Skills for the Future


From 4-8th March we celebrate the achievements of individual apprentices and all those who contribute to their success.

Apprenticeships and work-based learning are providing the skills needed for a successful Scotland. With that in mind this year’s theme is ‘Skills for the Future’, recognising the importance of investing in our workforce.

Apprenticeship opportunities in Scotland are growing and we want as many young people and employers as possible to benefit.

With activities and events across the country, this is the time to shout about the role you play in supporting apprenticeships and work-based learning. Register your event and let's celebrate Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2019.
