Foundation Apprenticeships are new work-based qualifications developed by Skills Development Scotland (SDS) in partnership with employers, colleges and Sector Skills Councils to create stronger links between education and industry. Foundation Apprenticeships are aimed at pupils in S5 & S6, giving them the opportunity to complete elements of a Modern Apprenticeship (MA) while still at school.
They combine academic learning with hands-on practical tasks and also include work experience with a local employer. The knowledge, skills and work experience gained will help to broaden options for pupils, enabling them to go on to complete a Modern Apprenticeship, attend college/university or go directly into employment.
