We’re supporting Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2021, co-ordinated by Skills Development Scotland, to demonstrate the value apprenticeships bring to individuals, employers and the economy.
This year’s theme is Business Backing Talent, which aims to demonstrate how businesses benefit when they back talent through apprenticeships.
Businesses have adapted to challenging times. Employers and learning providers have innovated in order that apprentices can learn, achieve and progress, and businesses taking on apprentices have developed new and safe ways to recruit in their commitment to backing talent.
The week highlights both the range of support available to employers to help them take on an apprentice, as well as the opportunities for individuals to progress through Foundation, Modern and Graduate Apprenticeships.
Scottish Apprenticeships support the Young Person's Guarantee, introduced by Scottish Government to ensure that everyone aged between 16 and 24 has the opportunity of work, education or training.
For businesses who can give someone the chance of an apprenticeship, there's more support than ever before.
In these challenging times, apprentices can play a vital role in supporting businesses and the economy now and for the future.
