Modern Apprenticeship Week 2024

Modern Apprenticeship Week 2024

Scottish Apprenticeship Week is a nationwide celebration of apprenticeships. It’s a time when everyone can promote the benefits of work-based learning to people, employers and Scotland.

Here’s a handful of our wonderful Apprentices, congratulations to all of you!

Scottish Apprenticeship Week shines a spotlight on the benefits that work-based learning brings to: 

  • people of all ages and backgrounds 
  • employers of all sizes 
  • Scotland’s economy 

Apprenticeships create the skills every generation needs and every employer wants. This year’s campaign shows that apprenticeships give people high-quality opportunities. This supports them to achieve their full potential.  

This year, we are taking the time to showcase some of our Modern Apprentices fantastic achievements, across all the sectors we deliver qualifications.

Have a read at our interview with Keir Young, a support worker with Torrance Lodge, and how he overcame the small issues he had with dyslexia and completing his Modern Apprenticeship.

Take some time to look at the Sidey Training Academy to see how we have supported their Glass & Glazing Apprentices achieve their qualifications. You can also look at our video of one of our passed apprentices Lachlan, working with our Glass & Glazing Assessor Brian to see how “To do a Modern Apprenticeship”.

Learn about our longstanding relationship with Health & Social Care organisations Key and how we have supported members of their team achieve qualifications from Support Workers through to Area Managers.

Discover how we support staff working with Children & Young People in residential service Imagine Care.

Finally, hear from one of our Modern Apprentices in Business Administration at SQA and his thoughts on how completing an apprenticeship has generated the required skills to find a full time role within the International Department at SQA.
