A Foundation Apprenticeship helps you get qualified through work experience and work-based learning. Usually, you take it as one of your S5 subject choices and work towards a qualification over 2 years. It’s an SCQF Level 6 qualification, which is the same as a Higher, but unlike your other subjects, your Foundation Apprenticeship takes you out of the classroom and gets you working on real projects with a real business. You get training at College and with an employer.

A Foundation Apprenticeship gives you the combination of a qualification and valuable work experience in some of Scotland’s most exciting industries, all with projected growth in jobs.
