Apprenticeships enable you to gain work experience when studying for a degree. Apprenticeship programmes in Scotland are funded by the Scottish Government and run by Skills Development Scotland.
Apprenticeships enable a learning service, such as a college or university, to provide information and enhance the apprentice’s skills, whilst the contractor offers practical work experience. Training can occur in a classroom, a workshop, or the workplace, depending on the subject and learning provider.
Is there an age limit for modern apprenticeships?
Individuals who receive industry-recognised certificates through the Modern Apprenticeship (MA) scheme can earn money. It offers people aged 16, and up the opportunity to work for a living, so there is no age limit for modern apprenticeships. A Modern Apprentice may be ideal for a current or new employee looking to further their career.
