Foundation Apprenticeships

Ambition, Confidence, Happiness and Respect.


Foundation Apprenticeships are ideal for pupils who want to learn about the world of work and gain knowledge of industries while still being at school. A Foundation Apprenticeship is a 2 year course, therefore aimed at those going into S5. By choosing a Foundation Apprenticeship you are allowing yourself to gain a qualification that is the same level as a higher, learn essential skills, and gives you the potential for job progression upon completing your apprenticeship. 

For you, this is a chance to get started with your career and work in the real world on real projects. Foundation Apprenticeships allow employers to train the future workforce and set them up with the skills they need for their future.
