Modern Apprenticeships

Modern Apprenticeships help employers to develop their workforce by training new staff, and upskilling existing employees. For individuals, an MA is a job which lets them earn a wage and gain an industry-recognised qualification. They offer a different pathway into Further/Higher Education and the world of work.

This section will give details on Modern Apprenticeship opportunities as well as information on activities happening within James Hamilton Academy.
