Foundation Apprenticeships

This is a new type of apprenticeship for pupils in S5 and S6. Skills Development Scotland has developed Foundation Apprenticeships to help young people gain valuable work experience and access to practical learning while still studying at school.

A Foundation Apprenticeship in Social Services and Healthcare or Engineering takes two years. During this time, you will spend part of the week out of school at college. You will also spend time in an NHSScotland workplace, learning on the job.
