What does this involve?

Through the Modern Apprenticeship programme you can offer part-funded training for new or existing staff. Your Modern Apprentice will gain key skills and a recognised industry qualification on the job.

Benefits include:

  • discovering new talent
  • upskilling new or existing staff
  • encouraging talented staff to stay with your business
  • getting access to skills your business needs to succeed

Am I eligible?

Yes, if your business is based in Scotland and needs to train staff in one of the 80+ different areas (or frameworks) currently available in the Modern Apprenticeships programme.

Visit the Apprenticeships.scot website to access the full list of 80+ frameworks.

What does this cost?

You'll pay your Modern Apprentice’s wages.

Skills Development Scotland will make a financial contribution to the training costs. This will depend on how old your apprentice is and what field they work in.

Who is this for?

Employers in Scotland who want to improve the skills of their existing staff or tap into new talent.

How long does this take?

Usually a Modern Apprenticeship will take between 1 and 4 years to complete. It will depend on the framework and what level of SCQF qualification your apprentice is working towards.
