Make the most of apprenticeships to support your business

Support provided by Skills Development Scotland

What does this involve?

Apprenticeships can help provide the skills you need to adapt, sustain and strengthen your business, whether it’s hiring someone new or developing an existing employee.

Skills Development Scotland will guide you through getting started and support you with the cost of training.

Scottish apprenticeships - Foundation, Modern and Graduate - can help improve your talent pipeline and address skills gaps.

There are also options to support businesses to take on apprentices affected by the coronavirus pandemic:

  • Pathways Apprenticeships
  • Adopt an Apprentice

Am I eligible?

Employers across Scotland are eligible for support with apprenticeships.

What does this cost?

This is a free service in Scotland.

Who is this for?

Larger businesses who want to develop skills critical to the Scottish economy and grow their business by maximising opportunities from work-based learning, further and higher education and industry engagement.

How long does this take?

You'll work with a Relationship Account Executive to grow your business and examine your skills needs. This in an ongoing process with no set timescales.
