Apprenticeships in Scotland

What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a way of gaining valuable work experience as well as an industry recognised qualification. In a nutshell, an apprenticeship is when you:

  • Earn whilst you learn
  • Gain work experience
  • Gain recognised qualifications
  • Sustain long term employment
  • Can kick start your career

Whatever apprenticeship you are considering, researching, or hoping for, make sure the qualification that accompanies the job is accredited and if you are not sure, seek advice from a careers adviser or professional from that industry. You can always check out our Frequently Asked Questions.
